How To Become The President Of China

On his visit to Japan, President Hu Jintao visited a school for children of Chinese expatriates there. As a grandpa-like leader, he answered a few questions from the children, as reported by the New China Press:
An eight year old boy eagerly stood up: "Grandpa Hu, why did you want to become the President?" His question caused loud laughter in the room. "I want to tell you, I never wanted to be the President myself. It's the people of the whole China, they elected me, and wanted me to be the President. I can't let them down."

President Hu Jintao's answer got another child very interested: "I wanted to become the President too. How could I become the President?" In the laughter, Hu Jintao said: "No matter what you want to do when you grow up, you need to study hard when you are young, build strong morals and a strong body. Then, you can succeed in whatever you do in the future."
