    The world has changed.
    Russia has changed.
    Vladimir Putin has changed.
    But not enough.
    Not enough for the Russians, and not enough for anybody else.
    Putin either has to shift gears — fast — or get out of the way. Staying the course can only hatch problems that neither the Russians nor the rest of us would ever want to face.
