Oh well I had the right president, since Nixon was the first president to go there, but not the only one who could. Jerry Ford went there in 1975, Ronald Regan went there in 1984, George Bush the First went to China in 1989, Bill Clinton went there in 1998, George Bush II went there in 2001, and again in 2005 (the famous pic of him trying to open doors that wouldn't open), Obama went there in 2009.

In the context of supposing 'if he didn't go to China, none of the others would have gone there' - we'll never know, but I sit corrected, well played sir.

Time will tell if Rodman's visit to North Korea has the impact of Nixon's trip to China, eh? I won't hold my breath but...

And if it works, Dennis should go to Cuba next!
