Perhaps hoping to help her in time for the 2016 election, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton "has never been too graceful" in public statements. “It's better not to argue with women," he said. In March, Clinton compared Putin's latest machinations to those of Hitler in the 1930s. When asked if it would be tougher to meet with Clinton instead of Obama at a luncheon hosted by French President Francois Hollande on Friday, Putin responded, "When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak. But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman."
