Museum of Science and Technology
Obama makes remarks at the Shanghai museum. Among students, shopkeepers and Internet users, the president’s visit to Shanghai has been one of the most anticipated by a foreign leader to China in recent years. “I have a very good impression of Obama,” said Shanghai resident Jiang Heting, 21. “Even though I’ve read that some Americans disapprove of how he’s handling the economic crisis, I still like him very much.” (Mandel Ngan / AFP / Getty Images)
Questions for Obama
The meeting was an unusual exercise in U.S.-style participatory democracy for China. It would be unheard of for Chinese students to speak with their own president, Hu Jintao, in such an informal setting. Some of the questions posed, such as those about Obama’s wife and family, would be strictly off-limits. (Saul Loeb / AFP / Getty Images)
