Mr. Locke is a downright Chinese descent, his grandfather, the late 19th century, to the United States, to pursue the “American dream”, after three generations, only in Locke a generation to realize the original dream, to enter the U.S. high society. That year, Locke successfully entered Washington’s residence, there was meaningful to say that his grandfather, lived in the place, from the governor’s residence just 1 km away, and they, in order to finish the miles, spending a full one hundred years time.

When Obama made this important decision, there will be, Mr. Locke is the “American Dream” the perfect embodiment of those considerations into the inside? When Locke set foot on Chinese soil, he’s of Chinese descent, yellow-faced nature of hair very clear; his mission as the U.S. ambassador to China, the “American Dream” has strong vitality of live examples.
