FILE This Sunday, March 4, 2012 file photo shows Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who claimed victory in Russia's presidential election, with tears running down his face up as he reacts at a massive rally of his supporters at Manezh square outside Kremlin, in Moscow. It seems a strange sight: The president of the United States, sometimes called the most powerful person in the world, breaking down in tears thanking campaign workers for their tireless _ and ultimately successful _ work on his behalf. But Barack Obama isn't the only world leader unashamed or unable to avoid being seen crying in public. Putin is a judo fan and hunting aficionado known in part for his physical fitness. But that didn't stop him from welling up with tears in March after he was returned to power in a difficult election battle marred by public protests.(AP Photo/Ivan Sekretarev)
