No surprise here: Condi Rice fails

Rice Fails to Win Russian Support on Iran
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice failed Saturday to persuade Russia to offer new support for a hard line on Iran's disputed nuclear program, despite making a hastily arranged trip to the Russian capital.

Despite lengthy meetings with Russian officials, including a long session alone with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, it was clear Russia had not changed its opposition to using the Security Council.
Rice is a something-bordering-on-pathological liar who couldn't convince the Russians to tie their shoe laces, much less go against their own national interests.

Also, I am told, by someone who is fluent in Russian, that she speaks halting Russian with an American accent. I never thought much of her claims that she was an expert on Russia.
