    As if it mattered. The adequacy law: the leadership is always adequate to the socially active part of those led by it. Translating for the situation at hand: “No matter whose derriere is filling the chair, the chair is being filled by a derriere.”

    Interesting, but…
    It still seems unlikely to me that Putin would stand back and allow Medvedev to be crushed if he didn’t accept the result. Also, the idea of Putin retiring seems absurd – he would be in far too much danger without the power to protect himself.
