Now Undersecretary of State Peter Tarnoff and his hosts in Beijing can get down to the real problems in Sino-American relations. They are serious enough, and reflect the clashing values and priorities of the two societies.The most difficult are China's own nuclear testing; its sale of strategic weaponry to such countries as Pakistan and Iran; China's belligerent method of pressing claims to islets and seabed in the South China Sea to which other nations have competing claims; fairness of trade, and China's huge advantage in the trade balance between the two countries; and the current U.S. attitude toward Taiwan, which five previous U.S. presidents have called part of China.

Washington -- SHE CAME, she saw, she gave them hell.Now the Chinese understand how crotchety American critics feel about Hillary Clinton.They too wish she'd stick to baking cookies and working on her hairstyle.Maybe her Beijing hosts were hoping Mrs. Clinton would stay with the softer, wifely image she's adopted lately. Or at least talk in genteel diplomatese.Instead, she tongue-lashed the last communist superpower like a schoolmarm bullying a mob of muggers and misfits.It was risky, overseas stardom no first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt could have performed.

U.S. relations with China will be difficult for the foreseeable future, and vitally important. China is a demographic giant undergoing enormous economic growth. It has a Communist ruling class hanging on to monolithic power while instituting capitalism, a contradiction that cannot endure. Nor can the tension between China's theory of centralized decisions and reality of regional autonomy. Anxiety-prone bureaucrats are trying desperately to stabilize the authority of Jiang Zemin as successor to the failing Deng Xiaoping.

The first lady has a problem. She is desperate to address the United Nations Conference on Women to be held in Beijing next month. The conference will be ''an important opportunity to focus attention on women,'' she told a reporter for the New York Times.Liberals adore such international conferences. It gives them an opportunity to express their profound support for all things good (development, equality, progress) and to deplore all things bad (imperialism, war, exploitation). Making speeches and attending workshops gives them a heady sense of accomplishment.
