Ho's Conversation with Mao
In a dark place only they know where, Ho Chi Minh says to Mao Zedong: "Comrade, look at your capitalist country. How do you like it?"
"I hate it!"
Ho laughs. Mao frowns, "Hey, look at your Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Isn’t it soaked in capitalism?"
"My followers follow your footsteps."
"Not my footsteps!"
"You talked to President Nixon, didn’t you?"
"That’s history. Let’s return to change things back to what they were." Mao extends his hand to Ho who hesitates.
"You go first," Ho says. Mao stares at him.
