    His finest hour was when he stood on a tank and helped turn back the attempted coup of 1991. His leadership during the 90's left much to be desired. I couldn't rate him overall. IMO, he was near great in the former case and a near disaster in the latter. That doesn't mean he was average overall.

    I dunno.
    If you had asked about Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale from Pottsylvania, I would have said he's going to get it from moose and squirrel. Rocky and Bullwinkle will save the world from their evil plan.
