For all the upbeat public statements, a pall of disagreement on missile defense and NATO expansion lingered over the glittering Kremlin hall where Obama and Medvedev answered reporters' questions. Obama said the meetings had been "frank," diplomatic speak for difficult.
Obama: Nukes are not cool.
Medvedev: Ya they are.
Obama: Well, okay. But we should do some stuff that makes it look like we at least think they're not cool.
Medvedev: ::shrug:: Ok. Stop making those silly plans to defend yourselves in case we drop one on you, and lets just just reduce the number of nukes we've got, the same as before.
Obama: Gah. Whatever.
