georgia and the elections..
i've been thinking about this a bit but haven't read or heard anything about the possible influence of the development in georgia on the outcome of the elections.
considering the fact that a candidate cannot take any actions and his reactions are bound to public words a diplomatic stance would not have any chance to be practiced and brought to success by a candidate.
taking into account the 2004 elections and taking into account the rise in mccain's popularity in mid august, do you consider it possible that we will see the american russian relationships coming to a crisis over georgia in the month until the elections?

I certainly hope the US stays out of the whole Georgia dustup, other than as part of a multinational group to keep the violence at a minimum.
Georgia's Pres kicked Putin in the shins - After his big brother (the US) told him not to. Putin bitch-slapped and sodomized Saakashvili for that transgression. IMO, he got what he deserved.Check Out Ullr's Mobile Avalanche Safety Tools for iOS and Android

Putin is an old-schooler who seems to long for the bad old days. As much as he'd like, Russia is no longer a world power. The new "cold war" will be economic competition between the US and China.

I think it is more likely that the US and/or Israel have issues with Iran before the election.

Not anymore. Without the Russians we have no leverage against Iran. It's either military action or strike a deal with them. But in order to deal with the Russians(who pose a threat 100x larger than do the Iranians) in a manner they will respond to, we need relative calm in the middle east. In order to get that we need the help of the Iranians. Which means no military action.it's all young and fun and skiing and then one day you login and it's relationship advice, gomer glacier tours and geezers.

Generic comment about most voters not having a clue which state Atlanta is in, let alone knowing anything about some far-away place.
It's a non-issue. Like the economy, education, health care, etc."Active management in bear markets tends to outperform. Unfortunately, investors are not as elated with relative returns when they are negative. But it does support the argument that active management adds value." -- independent fund analyst Peter Loach
