I see that Pravda records the enthusiastic reaction of Russian politicians toward the election of Barack Obama. The telling response is from the head of Russia's Communist Party, Gennady Zyuganov:

All Republican presidents have always defended national interests, ignoring the
interests of other countries of the world. The new US president cannot but
understand that it is impossible to seek and find answers to many global issues
without the participation of such a great country as Russia.

Zyuganov gives the game away. He knows what Republicans do in office and he anticipates what Democrats will do. That's why around the world, America's enemies are smiling. It's fine to talk about waiting for Obama to get into office and then judge him by what he does, and that is fair comment. But I believe it is already clear what he will do and so do those in the Kremlin from the sounds of it. Strategists anticipate.
