Now what has this new Kuominta
Now what has this new Kuomintang Party that seems destined to win the next election in two years got to say about these problems? Two years is an eternity, although Mayor Ma is now considered by far the front-runner, while the DPP is struggling to name a candidate. The problem is, what does he really think? People on the mainland are excited about him. They think he may be the person who can resolve this terrible problem across the straits.
On the other hand, is that an albatross for Mayor Ma with respect to his popularity and his future in the next presidential election? Is he too close to the mainland, or is he now evolving to the point of seeing Taiwan independence as an option?
