The Economist: Obama, Eastern Europe and Russia.

See "Looking West, Hopefully". The President-elect is popular and "has juice" in most of mainstream Europe. He presumably wants to keep that. What, if anything, would the Obama administration do to promote the political and economic autonomy of eastern European nations? Will the new administration "fight hard for greater European independence from Russia’s monopoly of east-west gas pipelines"?
