Politics not as usual

The prez-elect gets some good advice in an open letter to Barack Obama from Alice Walker:

A good model of how to "work with the enemy" internally is presented by the Dalai Lama, in his endless caretaking of his soul as he confronts the Chinese government that invaded Tibet.

Fifth King of BhutanTyentte Deveaux on Shambhala Sun Space writes that Obama's election is a good sign for Tibetans too (despite the Dalai Lama's apparent disappointment with Beijing).

And Konchog at Dreaming of Danzan Ravjaa writes that Obama's election may be swell and all, but Bhutan has a new Dragon King.
