Bush and Putin Reel It In

Hosted by

George Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin got together in Kennebunkport, Maine for two days of lengthy conversations, an event that once might have held great significance for the rest of the world. After their meetings, they held a press conference that was amiable in tone, though on major issues they mostly agreed to disagree. The White House had played down expectations, and America news agencies followed suit with low-key stories about missile defense and Iranian nuclear enrichment.   In Russia, it was a different story.
