Washington (CNN) - It worked.
That is the argument former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made during a Thursday interview about her much talked about 2009 reset of U.S.-Russia relations.
Washington (CNN) - Most Americans say Russia is directly or indirectly responsible for the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine, and unfavorable opinions of Russia have surged, according to a new national poll.
A CNN/ORC International survey conducted Friday through Sunday also indicates that nearly nine in 10 say that Moscow and pro-Russian rebels that control the area where Flight 17 crashed last week will try to cover something up in any international investigation.
(CNN) - Russian President Vladimir Putin should "man up" and offer clear explanations amid important questions about the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein said on Sunday.
"I think the nexus between Russia and the separatists have been established very clearly. So the issue is, where is Putin?" Feinstein said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union."
Washington (CNN) - Top American officials harshly criticized Russia on Friday for its continued support of pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine following the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner.
President Barack Obama said Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has the "most control" over the situation in eastern Ukraine as intelligence indicates that rebels most likely shot down Flight 17 from an area they control with a surface-to-air missile.
CNN and National Journal joined forces Thursday to explore the 2014 midterm elections at the first "Politics on Tap" event in Washington D.C. Sen.

(CNN) - If the Russians did it, it's their President's fault.
That was the message Sen. John McCain delivered after the United States concluded a missile shot down a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that crashed in a rebel-controlled part of eastern Ukraine on Thursday.
While it is unclear who shot down the plane, the Arizona Republican says that if either the Russian government or pro-separatist forces in Ukraine fired the missile, Russian President Vladimir Putin is ultimately responsible for the crash.
Washington (CNN) - There appears "to be some growing awareness" that "Russian insurgents" were behind the downing of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner in Ukraine on Thursday, Hillary Clinton said.
"If there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to have come from Russia," the former secretary of state and possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said.
(CNN) – If the Malaysia airliner in Ukraine was shot down, then the United States will need to take action against the assailants, two Republican senators argued Thursday.
"If it is the case, then we're going to have to act and act in the most stringent fashions, including real sanctions, including giving the Ukrainians the ability to defend themselves, which we have not done so far," Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Washington (CNN) - Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as someone who has "never been too graceful in her statements," according to the Kremlin transcript of an interview that aired on French TV and radio Wednesday.
After being asked about Clinton's recent tough rhetoric on Russia's foreign policy, Putin said, "It's better not to argue with women." He later characterized Clinton's comments as a sign of weakness, which is maybe "not the worst quality for a woman," he added.
CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.
1. THE NEXT ADMINISTRATION FLASHPOINT
The Veterans Affairs crisis ended this week in the resignation of General Shinseki, but Steve Inskeep of NPR says the next agency to come under scrutiny might be Homeland Security.
(CNN) - Americans are increasingly concerned about the ongoing situation in Ukraine, but few express support for using U.S. military force in that county, according to a new national survey released Monday.
A CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that even if economic and diplomatic efforts fail in curbing Russia's aggression in the region, Americans still oppose U.S. military involvement.
