ok, if you were the supreme leader prime minister of russia [former KGB, former prez, always badass], you would already have a pretty sweet life. and if you worked out, even better. russia has some lingering “image” issues from years of the cold war and all kinds of human rights issues, poverty, war craziness, etc. meaty stuff, really. so, how would a good leader fix such problems that will likely take several generations to “get over”? by conducting diplomacy 2.0.
as women take an increasingly larger role in government and society [and gay men, for that matter], there are new methods to solving problems. enter vladimir putin. he’s been man of the year, head of state, creative in the job creating department, and has eyes that gaze into your soul via computer [imagine that stare in real life – yowza].
so, he’s successful in his own right, but then BAM, journalists take these fabulous pictures to share with the world and he’s a dreamy site to behold. i’ve compiled a few to fawn over. enjoy. [i know i will.]
