Shrugging off Hillary Clinton's suggestion that he was acting kind of like Adolf Hitler, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said he didn't dwell on the criticism because Clinton is a woman.

"It's better not to argue with women," he said, according to an English translation of an interview posted to the Kremlin's website. "But Ms. Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements."

"When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak," he added. "But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman."
