So, um, Hi!
So, you're like the new kid on the country-running block. Must be kinda scary, though I guess it's cool that your mentor is going to stay on in a limited, minor role to help you out. Loyalty is really important in a man, I mean, world leader, wouldn't you say? In any case, good luck with running Russia, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. [NY Times, Washington Post]
