Liz Ryan

I'm not a policy person, and most of my friends aren't, either. Still, policies spring from ideals and values. As nice as it would be to keep politics out of the realm of friendship, can we ethically say "I couldn't care less what my friends believe -- I just care about them as friends?"

Prior to the scandal, Bo Xilai was the closest thing the Chinese Communist Party had to a Western media darling. But if Bo looks familiar to Western eyes it is because he embodied much of the worst of Western politicians.
