In the interest of international diplomacy, President Barack Obama took Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to Ray’s, a hamburger spot in Arlington, Virginia. Our president had a “cheddar cheeseburger with onions, lettuce, tomato and bread-and-butter pickles,” the Times reports. Their president ate a Cheddar burger topped with jalapeños, onions, and mushrooms. Whatever you do, Mr. President, do not kiss Dmitry Medvedev. [Caucus/NYT]
