george on my mind

stephanopoulos: you’ve now met with president obama many times, at least fifteen meetings and phone calls —
medvedev: sixteen times.
stephanopoulos: sixteen, ok, i knew it was fifteen, i wasn’t sure about the sixteenth. ah, what do you make of barack obama the man?
medvedev: he's a very comfortable partner. it’s very interesting to be with him. the most important thing that distinguishes him from many other people — i won’t name anyone by name — he’s a thinker. he thinks when he speaks.
stephanopoulos: [laughing] you had somebody in your mind, i think!
medvedev: obviously i do have someone on my mind, i don’t want to offend anyone.
(hat tip to think progress)
