Putin:- Man of the Year

Vladimir Putin, President Russian Federation, New hope to the Russians and Man of the year.
As a law graduate and able president, his law made me interested to write and summary of thoughts on speeches.

In the last 50 years, the idea that the United States is a unique nation seems to have taken root in the U.S. public psyche. It's perhaps not an absolutely groundless notion. It's a historical phenomenon that in 250 years, a nation could move from a colony into the most prosperous nation of the world and the leader of the world. It is indeed an achievement, a tribute to the talent of the American nation, the American people and an optimal political and economic system.

However, as a rule, leaders do not have rights; they mostly have commitments and obligations. When they come to think that they have rights, they tend to lose their position and authority.

Today to be successful, one must be able to reach agreements, to compromise, The ability to compromise is not a diplomatic politeness toward a partner but rather taking into account and respecting your partner's legitimate interests.

If one looks at the map of the world, it's rather difficult to find Iraq, Iraq is a small but very proud nation.
Franklin Roosevelt did run, 3rd and 4th time, he instilled optimism into the souls of the American people and trust in the future

Roads, housing, education***

Why did Mr. Kasparov, when arrested, speak out in English rather than Russian? The whole thrust of this thing was directed toward others then own...If you aspire to be a leader of your own country, you must speak your own language, for God's sake.

I must say that in the transitional economy, and especially under the conditions of restructuring the political system, it is difficult to address corruption problems.

: First and foremost we should be governed by common sense. But common sense should be based on moral principles first. And it is not possible today to have morality separated from religious values. I will not expand, as I don't want to impose my views on people who have different viewpoints.

TIME: Do you believe in a Supreme God?
PUTIN: Do you? ... There are things I believe, which should not in my position, at least, be shared with the public at large for everybody's consumption because that would look like self-advertising or a political striptease.

*****one doesn't have to be a particularly bright highbrow to see the obvious
*****Fools are lucky. We work day and night!
