Obama in Russia meeting on the full moon?
Very iffy. A first encounter that takes place during a Lunar Eclipse is always highly emotionally charged. Attractions between the people involved are volcanic and intense, giving both individuals a sense of immediate intimacy and the feeling that they have known each other all their lives, they've met on common ground, can communicate despite obstacles better than they would have ever guessed and, in a way, "they have found each other at last."
The weird thing is, however, after the eclipse is over they, do not keep up as profound a relationship as they think it will be at first. Despite the deep impact they may have upon each other in the [first] moment, they rarely see each other often afterwards, and always remain in two different worlds with two very distinct world views and lifestyles. In other words, it's not going to be a magic solution to anything on any short term basis.
A couple of questions are still floating around the Universe. Will this turn out to be an effective diplomatic tour or just an escape from the drudgery of work? Also, isn't this maybe a trip the American Secretary Of State should be taking? Obama? Talk about being on a dark road without a GPS!
