He granted me a 30-minute interview (in Romanian). He is not that much into social media, but he won the 2004 elections being very cool and loose, as opposed to an uptight Adrian Năstase, his opponent.

I am not the first blogger to interview him, but i am the first that got to him by being just a blogger. He was tired (it was his last campaign interview) and had a cold. But a man with “the weight of the world on his shoulders”.
