Coronation of the Figurehead

It is being apparent that the upcoming presidential election in Russia will be more of a coronation of Dmitry Medvedev than a free and fair election. Boris Nemtsov dropped out of the contest, calling it a "farce."

I don't know anything about Nemtsov's political ideas. But from all of the coverage, Vladimir Putin has stage-managed the process to ensure that he retains control of the levers of power in Russia.

Chimpy and Darth must be green with envy.
