Putin's delight at title

I was interested to note this morning, the delighted noises issuing from the Kremlin at the announcement of Vladimir Putin as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2007. This seems to be at variance with the lack of importance usually accorded western opinion by Russia’s current regime. It appears that Putin is just as susceptible to seeking a little validation as the rest of us!

A fair point! :-) Sir Dave gracing the front cover of Time would be a fitting image on which to end the year.
