[Voice of America Intl. Edition] March 18th: Putin Wins and Americans Should Care

I appear on Voice of America Intl Edition on March 18th. Putin wins re-election with more than 70% of the vote. This is not a surprise but tha ramifications of another 6 year term for Vladimir Putin will have a very real impact upon American foreign policy.  Putin and his team are some of the most experienced, talented and capable on the planet right now.  This is not a question of good or bad, just of capability.  Further, Putin has made it clear that Russia is back and willing to fight above its weight class and regularly win.  

This will be a fun conversation.
