Obama wants to wait on olympic boycott

From NYTimes,

'now Senator Barack Obama is suggesting a more cautious approach.

Mr. Obama said Wednesday that President Bush should leave open the option of boycotting the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games if the Chinese government did not take steps to help stop genocide in Darfur as well as improving human rights for the people of Tibet. Still, he said, a decision to boycott should be made closer to the Games.'

Why do you want to wait? Do you think China gives a hoot? The sooner you support the boycott the more pressure you can put on China.
