President Obama met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel this afternoon, with Ukraine being the main topic on the agenda.

The situation on the ground in Ukraine has been described as a high-stakes chess game, and Garry Kasparov, world chess champion and chairman of the Human Rights Foundation, expressed little confidence in the players yesterday.

That does sound like Obama. Did this morning’s news conference inspire any confidence in Kasparov?

We haven’t heard from Bill Clinton, but who can forget Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s contribution?
