I bring up Medvedev because this week Mitt Romney called Russia America's "number one geopolitical foe" in response to a conversation about missile defense in South Korea. And much to our amusement, Medvedev responded with some advice:
"I would recommend all U.S. presidential candidates ... to do two things. First, when phrasing their position one needs to use one's head, one's good reason, which would not do harm to a presidential candidate.
"Also, (one needs to) look at his watch: we are in 2012 and not the mid-1970s."
