Kremlin: The New / Old Bases of Power…

Mr Putin had this to say: “The purpose of the People’s Front is to supply Parliament with fresh blood. Its creation has also brought fresh blood to the United Russia party. I hope the party will continue to support this process, with a view to stimulating political vigor in its ranks.”

Hummm, from my studying of the situation. I see just a revamp of the old into a new package and it is working. Putin’s power-base has grown exponentially…

Everyone equates this move to a presidential run by Putin. I am not so sure anymore about if he will run for president again. He might and has every right to run and most likely will, if he so desires. But why run for president of Russia when he is in charge of Russia anyway? (That is my opinion only and really think he will run for president anyway regardless of what I think. :))

You must understand that you have to look at the ruling tandem in Russia in a simplified way, not the complicated way that the West tries to look at it. Medvedev is in charge of foreign affairs and Putin is in charge of internal affairs. That is the part (internal government) that Putin wants anyway. I do not see Putin as being a happy go lucky man of international delight. Medvedev on the other hand adores traipsing around the world…

So while the Western world is mortified at the thought that Putin will take the command chair of presidency again! That is not where the real power, at this moment in Russia is located. If he did take the presidency again then I assure you that international and internal affairs would fall under the president again…

I am seeing the possibility of Medvedev staying right where he is at as president of Russia. He is the Western loved face that the West wants to see. Putin in the meantime has built his power-base not to take over presidency again but make his position one of raw power with in Russia’s borders…

It is the same thing to me that happens with a large school district in America. You have a superintendent, principle and vice principles. The superintendent who is the top dog on paper is only a political figurehead but he is the top dog. Then you have a principle that is the more localized figurehead. He is half political and half hands on. Then the people who run the big school are the vice principles. He does all the dirty work and deals with all the crap that makes a school run. The saying that you are only as good as your employees is very true. Russia reminds me of that type of system…

I have done some thinking’s and realize that Putin may not want to be president again. Why would he? He has all the power and a base of power that makes him top dog without having to do top dog things that he does not like to do. Like meet the president of America and act like he likes him… 🙂

It is almost a case of “have one’s cake and eat it too”…
