McCain Will Meet With Dali Lama in Colorado

I guess this story is not as important to the media as Obama’s speech to his throng of Germans in Berlin.

John McCain will step off the campaign trail tomorrow to sit down with the Dalai Lama.

McCain will meet with the Tibetan spirtual leader and international icon in Aspen, Colo., according to a McCain aide.

The Dalai Lama is there as part of a three-day Aspen Institute conference billed as “A Celebration of Tibetan Culture.”

The Arizona senator was already scheduled to be in the state to speak to a military gathering in Denver.

McCain has been outspoken about the Chinese crackdown in the Tibetan region, issuing a statement earlier this year praising the Dalai Lama and urging Beijing to begin a “genuine dialogue” with the spiritual leader.
