Putin steals the ball in the diplomatic game

Putin radiates naglost, the Russian word for chutzpah. He lectures us about democracy, and has a sophist’s ability to probe our growing doubts about our role in the world.

The Insiders: Obama won't meet with Putin. It's just as well.

Even if there ever was an Obama-Putin relationship, it's over for the rest of the Obama presidency. It will be up to the next president to push the re-reset button.
