(Newser) – Relations between the US and Russia have been a bit rocky lately, but that doesn't mean Vladimir Putin doesn't appreciate all the good we have to offer. In a preview of Charlie Rose's 60 Minutes interview with the Russian leader, per CBS News, Putin reveals what he admires most about America is "creativity when it comes to tackling your problems" and "openness and open-mindedness because it allows them to unleash the inner potential of their people." Feeling all warm and fuzzy toward Putin? Well, then there's this: Rose tells him he's "much talked about," to which Putin responds, "Maybe they have nothing else to do in America but talk about me." The full interview airs on CBS this Sunday.
