Sometime in 1995, Michael Caputo becomes an adviser to Russian president Boris Yeltsin, who he takes responsibility for re-electing in 1996.

Mr. Caputo worked for the United States Agency for International Development as an adviser to the Yeltsin administration in 1995. It was in Russia that he got the scar, on his right ankle, from a run-in, he says, with a drunken political operative.

When he returned to the United States in 1999, he found the American political scene boring.

“In Russia, the fascists want to kill you, the communists want to starve you, and the democrats want to pick your pocket for a while,” Mr. Caputo said. “I got back to the United States and I realized that the only difference between John Kerry and George Bush was a degree of tax cut.”
