It is not common practice for senior U.S. government officials to visit Taiwan. The last time a really high-ranking official visited Taiwan was 25 years ago, when then-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich traveled there. Gingrich remained the highest-ranking U.S. official ever to visit Taiwan until today, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) arrived in Taipei.
