  • Clinton: Putin is a tough but thin-skinned leader

    A day after she likened actions of Russia's president on Ukraine's Crimean peninsula to those of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday Vladimir Putin is a tough but thin-skinned leader who is squandering his country's potential.

    "I know we are dealing with a tough guy with a thin skin. I’ve had a lot of experience — well, not only with him but with people like that."

    Clinton warned during her latest speech at the University of California, Los Angeles that "all parties should avoid steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to miscalculation at this delicate time." [AP]
