The House of Representatives voted today on a bill regarding Tibet:
Calling on the Government of the People's Republic of China to end its crackdown in Tibet and enter into a substantive dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama to find a negotiated solution that respects the distinctive language, culture, religious identity, and fundamental freedoms of all Tibetans, and for other purposes.

The vote was 413-1-17. The lone "no" vote was cast by Ron Paul (R-Texas)... and he thought he could be president?!

In other news, the torch relay in San Francisco today was rerouted to avoid protesters and the crowd in general. What's the point of having the relay if no one sees it?

I guess all these people came out for nothing
