Right Again, Mr. President

President Nixon, Beijing, February 21, 1972:
If [our two peoples] can find common ground to work together, the chance for world peace is immeasurably increased.
Secretary of State Clinton, Beijing, February 22, 2009:
[B]y continuing to support American Treasury instruments, the Chinese are recognizing our interconnection. We are truly going to rise or fall together. We are in the same boat.
