"Seen as having a zero-tolerance attitude towards corrupt officials"

Good luck with that.

Let's just hope he can do better job than Kim Jong the Second did in N. Korea.

I remember some info-babe (I think it was either CNBC or HNN) actually calling him that name once.

"The people's desire for a better life is what we shall fight for"

In other news, jobs will now be moving to a country which does not have all this hippie talk of a better life.

I just happen to live in Beijing, and I am definitely going to use that.

A pity this elevator doesn't understand me when I try to say the new leader's name.

He seems solid, only the best aspiring world leaders have "reagan hair"....

With regards to the asian name, I wonder whether China would get a leader with a western name, like "Bill" or "Mike" before the US gets an asian president, with or without an asian-sounding first name. It took a long time before the US was comfortable with an asian basketball player (Jeremy Lin), and the US is still clearly uncomfortable with a (half-)black president. I don't know when an asian president would be possible. Maybe in about 24 years.
