I can’t believe I missed this gem. I must have been focused too much on the Olympics.
According to Virginia Governor Tim Kaine (who is being discussed as a potential VP candidate for Obama), Obama has quelled the Russians. You read that right! Because of his request for a cease fire, the Bear lays down its arms and agrees to pull out of Georgia… well, sort of.
It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in. And I’m very, very happy that the Senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.

No, it wasn’t President Bush, Secretary Rice, or even Senator John McCain. It was the request put forth by the silvery tongued former Illinois State Senator. I guess if he can navigate Chicago politics he can accomplish anything!
I don’t know whether to laugh or be very, very afraid at the naiveté of the Obama camp.
