Obama's weeklong trip to China has included opportunities to try out tai-chi, walk the Great Wall and feed the pandas. That’s all to be expected from a first lady soaking up culture while traveling abroad. But at times, the first lady's words veered from soft subjects such as the value of education into more pointed messages about the importance of Internet freedom and respect for minorities.
