Obama hosts Hu as world powers look for common ground

President Barack Obama is granting a generous welcome to Chinese President Hu Jintao as the world's two top powers seek common ground on economic and security issues.
Hu arrived in Washington for a four-day state vacation on Tuesday.
Hu will hold talks with Obama on Wednesday, and for the first time in 12 years, the U.S. president obama will host a state dinner for a Chinese leader at the White House.
Analysts say both Obama and Hu will be looking to tamp down distrust.
Many Americans blame China for America's high unemployment, and lawmakers are pushing legislation against Beijing's currency policy which they say gives unfair assist to Chinese exporters.
The two leaders will also talk about security concerns including North Korea's nuclear program.
