Taiwan: TV debate

Rank‘s Beginner blogger finds humor in a television debate between two of Taiwan's top politicians, Ma Ying-jeou and Chen Shuibian.

“This may be the first time I've seen Chen in a conversational context and it's the first time I've understood his appeal. He makes me laugh. The most amusing part of his ‘conversation’ with Ma was when he asked him to define the boundaries of [the Republic of China] under his ‘one China, each his own interpretation’ ('92 consensus) model.”
