Putin-Medvedev Once Again

Have I mentioned that I love Johnson’s Russia List?  Among other things, it gives a nice sense of the conventional wisdom about Russia by citing enormous amounts of it.  It also allows the parlor game (in the boring parlors I frequent) of tracking down diametrically opposed headlines.  The New Republic used to do this–it might still, but I haven’t looked at an issue recently.

Anyway, the 28 March JRL had these headlines on offer:

1. Interfax: Medvedev Certain Tandem With Putin Will
Be Efficient.
. . . .
3. Reuters: Russia’s Medvedev hints at Kremlin power
struggle.

I can imagine a world in which both are true, but it’s a pretty strange one.
