      I watched something on 60 minutes I think. Kasparov has long opposed his administration's actions and isn't afraid to say it.

        Real opposition is a rare thing in Russia. Kasparov has no chances here - it looks as PR action for me. What is its aim? Some people in Russia prone to see "hand of the West" in it.

          If he had a remote chance of winning he'd already be dead.

            Apart politic situation even if Russia had real democratic election IMO Kasparov's presidency would be impossible anyway because of traditional antisemitism of major part of electorate.
