This morning on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" George asked the Secretary of State, Robert Gates, whether Russia had been acting lately more like an adversary than an ally. Robert Gates said that he did not think it was "helpful" to classify nations as one or the other. He doesn't?!? What then did he think of his boss, President George W. Bush, classifying Iran, Iraq and North Korea as the "Axis of Evil?" Wasn't that equally "not helpful?"
