More friends than Bush

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has a Facebook page with more friends than President Bush, while we cannot say we are surprised at this.

Wen is pretty popular ,thanks to his quick and sympathetic response to the May 12th earthquake in central China that's killed more than 67,000 people.His comments to a teen trapped in the rubble, "This is Grandpa Wen Jiabao, hang on child, we will rescue you!" were widely reported and popular.
