The fact is that Sangay was elected due to his popularity. It was sort of like a Donald Trump moment, though not as bad. This is why the more knowledgeable people at Gangchen Kyishong did not vote for him. Really - A man with absolutely no governmental experience takes the highest office in the Tibetan exile administration? It would be laughable if it weren't serious. Sangay will win again because he knows how to court the people, not because he's the best candidate. I seriously don't know why he even inserted himself in politics. To me, it smacks of arrogance. Hopefully his policies are at least helping Tibetans in exile, because neither he nor anyone else is going to make any headway with the Chinese. To pretend otherwise is to court illusion. Tibetans are like Americans - many vote on popularity not on actual credentials or intelligent plans. It's too easy to dupe the masses. I wish Sangay the best in his next term, but he should stop pretending like anything is going to get accomplished vis a vis the Middle Way. Tibet is on its last breath. China is not interested in a Middle Way solution, and they never will be. Most Tibetans are living an illusion because they can't face the reality that their nation is all but dead. So, they ought to focus on making life in exile excellent because this Middle Way stuff will never work. You can tell me that your unicorn is going to fly every day for decades, but are you any closer to producing a flying unicorn?
