The dirty political showmanship of the eastern europeans vying for fide presidentship is schoolboy politics in the land of cut-outs.
Carlsen can have his 15 secs of fame. Its a traversty that one small mistake from Kramnik resulted in us missing out on a match between the 2 best classical players for a long time now, Anand and Kramnik.
I still feel the question between Kramnik and Anand is not settled yet, who is the better one. one match proves nothing. Kramnik beat Kasparov at his peak and Anand has beaten Kramnik at his peak.
Kasparov vs Anand vs Kramnik. Its an unsettled question still. The new kids on the block can chatter away as much as they want but class remains class. Growing up in the 90s my generation had the best of chess. Seeing the likes of Kasparov and Karpov slug it out, young stars like Anand, Kamsky, Kramnik, Topalov come up and the occassional old flames coming up like Fischer Vs Mr.X which would never happen.
