Photo of the Day

In this photo taken Monday, March 5, 2012, then Chongqing Communist Party Secretary Bo Xilai scratches his chin during the opening session of the National People's Congress in Beijing. As the U.S. presidential race gets ever more bruising, a very different political transition is unfolding in China, one in which the future leaders are trying not to generate news or criticism of the incumbents. The flamboyant Bo is one of the few Chinese politicians who did overtly campaign for a higher-level job, and that is believed to be one of the sins that led to his downfall. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)
