Tomorrow, Russia will hold a run-off election for the Presidency. Incumbent Boris Yeltsin is facing a serious challenge from Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov. The Clinton Administration has backed Yeltsin through thick and thin, a policy which some are saying is short sighted and has contributed to a growing Anti-American sentiment in Russia.
