    Russia, alone — probably not a great power. Russia, at the center of a bloc of countries it has historically dominated, plus places it was making great headway in during the Soviet era? Quite possibly stronger than a United States in Eurosocialist decline, bereft of meaningful European alliances, edged out by China in East Asia and Oceania, and indifferent (or aloof out of “anti-imperialist” principle) to the rest of the world.

    There is still a “path to the nomination” (as it were) for Russia. And Putin is charging down that path as hard as he can.

    Do we have to root for a winner? Can’t they both lose?
