Day 1



On the first day of the Obama Administration, Russians are taking stock and eyeing the future of US-Russian relations, even Father Frost.

"America is a beautiful country – very picturesque – but it has been unlucky with its leaders lately,' said a man dressed as Ded Moroz (a Russian Santa Claus) interviewed by CBS News in downtown Moscow. 'It has been run by the wrong people."

When did Ded Moroz get so political?

Still, the inaguration has put everyone in a good mood, even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei "Who are you to f#*$&^@ lecture me?" Lavrov. When asked about the future, he quipped, "We are open to equal dialogue."

Not a bad start for the first day at work, but tomorrow is a tricky thing.
