Bush calls the Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama doesn't seem to be feeling to well recently and good old Bush decided to call and see how the Tibetan leader is doing. A thoughtful act of kindness and compassion or a politically-motivated move to reintroduce the Dalai Lama into the spotlight? Who knows...

"President Bush called the Dalai Lama this morning to express his concern over the Dalai Lama's health," said spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

"The president's call reflects the great esteem he and the American people hold for the Dalai Lama, who is a revered religious figure in Tibetan Buddhism, a Nobel laureate and a recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal, and an important cultural figure and human rights advocate," said Johndroe.
