Medvedev was a lousy leader, all Mr.iPhone. I have little faith in him and his abilities. It would be better to get someone in the intelligence agency instead. But I figure he will be nothing more than a figure head.
Sure, its clear from the beginning that he is just Putin's temporary replacement for the post of presidency. Now I wonder which Russian politician will be best to replace Putin when his term ends? Russia needs someone who has more guts than Putin, someone who is willing to escalate things and make NATO back down and think twice before messing up with RF and its interests.
EDIT: about Medvedev, I think he deserves credit for his attempts to introduce innovations and technologies into the Russian market (skolkovo etc)
BTW I wasnt able to access sputniknews website for hours now, 503 Service unavailable it says, any chance its been hacked by Maidan?
