“I call him Vladimir”

Another odd moment for Bush today, when speaking about Vladimir Putin and Bush’s proposed expensive missile defense system that has both Putin and Eastern Europeans concerned:

“My message will be Vladimir — I call him Vladimir — you shouldn’t fear a missile defense system,” Bush said.

Ever the savvy international diplomat, though at least he’s not calling him “Vlad” these days.
