"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul." Oh, did you now, Mr. Bush? Didn't you see anything conniving and dangerous in there?
The Russian reaction to Obama's visit proves just how badly Bush misjudged Putin. The Russians have fallen under Putin's spell and have no respect-or use-for the U.S.
I had no idea that the French actually want to see Armstrong; they've always done their best to ban him from competing.
