Latest Dmitry Medvedev Items
As President Obama prepares to play host to a doubleheader of global diplomacy at the Group of Eight and NATO summits this weekend, there are increasing signs that the world is tuning out his message.
President Obama will have to wait a little while longer to ask Russian President Vladimir Putin for more "flexibility" on missile-defense talks.
Russian President Vladimir Putin had no trouble getting the Kremlin-controlled parliament to approve former President Dmitry Medvedev as his prime minister Tuesday, but he did not much like the startlingly critical questions Mr. Medvedev faced from lawmakers before the vote.
It was the end of an era, the kind of moment when a Twitter buff might unleash a barrage of 140-character spurts of sentiment, humor or self-aggrandizement.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev vowed Tuesday to pursue his modernization agenda and implement political reforms enacted after massive street protests, after he shifts into the prime minister's job.
There is so much constant, loud clatter in politics that often it is difficult to separate that which is important and revealing from that which is just noise. But President Obama said something important and revealing on Monday in South Korea. The White House tried to laugh off his comments at first and then to explain them away. But the implications are too serious for political spin.
"Don't shoot me, I'm a congresswoman" and "Don't shoot me, I'm a pastor" are among the protest mottos to be seen at high noon Thursday when reactions to the shooting of Trayvon Martin get more vigorous, and more political.
A defensive President Obama said Tuesday that he wasn't guilty of "hiding the ball" when an open microphone caught him pleading with the president of Russia to delay missile-shield talks until after this year's U.S. elections.
Unaware that a microphone was recording him, President Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday for breathing room until after Mr. Obama's re-election campaign to negotiate on missile defense.
