What do you think?? Good idea?
(CNN) -- U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Bush should consider boycotting the opening ceremony of the Olympics Games in Beijing this summer to protest China's human rights record.
"I think boycotting the opening ceremony, which really gives respect to the Chinese government, is something that should be kept on the table," Pelosi told "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts in an interview to air Tuesday morning, according to the ABC News Web site. "I think the president might want to rethink this later, depending on what other heads of state do."
Pelosi said she does not think U.S. athletes should boycott the games themselves.
President Bush said in late February he intends to meet with China's president during a trip to see the summer Olympic Games in Beijing.
The Olympic Games start August 8.
The Bush administration has accused China, a major U.S. trade partner, of human rights abuses. Bush didn't elaborate on what issues he might bring up.
