Dalai Lama: Political Leader or Pop Icon?

Hosted by

Obama-DL.jpgPresident Obama welcomed the Dalai Lama to the White House today. The meeting was to have taken place last year, but was postponed out of concern that it could trouble the waters ahead of a US-China summit last fall. After his stay in Washington, the Dalai Lama heads to southern California for an appearance at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday, on behalf of the nonprofit organization Whole Child International. Robert Barnett is Director of the Modern Tibet Program at Columbia University.
