Yes, six more years of real diplomacy and political mastery. I'm sad I couldn't vote for him though. Maybe some day it will be possible, one can at least hope I guess. :D As for Putin possibly going over to the dark side, I see not the slightest indication for it, quite the contrary in fact! He remains BY FAR the best leader we have at this point of time. What he accomplished since his first term, both domestically inside russia as well as abroad, is nothing short of amazing and miraculous. And it doesn't look like he has implemented all of his positive plans for russia yet. If his latest address to the nation is anything to go by, we can expect much more improvements, both inside russia and its allies.
Long way to go!
