Vlad looks to 2008

Vlad the Putin says he won't seek a third term, which is convenient since the Russian constitution doesn't currently allow third terms. He also says he won't let the political situation in Russia "destabilize" between the next president's election in 2008 and his swearing in.

Now in the United States, if a president said something like that, we'd say, "So what?"

But when Vlad says it, your gut reaction is different. You say, "What's he got planned?"

Whether it's Putin or Russian tradition we trust least, we're not sure.
