but the word is that Putin has his eye on another Deputy PrimeMinister
named Sergi Ivanov
to become the new President...
remember that Putin has maneuvered the post of Russia's 'President' into a
(modeled like the Bush-Cheney remaking of the U.S. Presidential office)
the position of PM in Russia is only ceremonial.
the President is, CEO, Command in Chief, holds the Keys/Codes of nuclear armageddon,,,& decrees his own Execuitive Orders (just like Bush)
