More leadership...from elsewhere

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced today that he would join Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany in skipping the Opening Ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics as a gesture of protest against Chinese barbarities in Tibet and elsewhere. They are joined by a smattering of athletes on this matter, as well as Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Still silent on this: George W Bush, John McCain, and Barack Obama.

Update: Obama and McCain have since followed Clinton's lead. No word from Bush about canceling a trip to the Openers.
