Obama Heads to Moscow

Hillary Clinton may have bungled her first attempt at hitting the “reset” button with Russia; now President Obama will give it a try. He leaves on Sunday night for a trip to Moscow—the first U.S.-Russia summit in seven years. On Monday, Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will declare their determination to reduce nuclear arsenals and repair their countries’ relationship, before moving onto trickier issues like Georgia and Iran. Later in the week, Obama will meet with the G8 leaders in Italy to discuss climate change and also have his first meeting with the pope.
