  1. An interesting development.

    If I were to name what was needed to successfully construct a new opposition party in The Sovie. . . err, Russia, I would list the following:

    1. Street Credibility – Gorbachev has this. He ushed in many popular changes during his tenure as General Secretary.

    2. A history of being able to stand up to Sovie. . . err, Russian political bullies. Gorbachev went up against powerful communist bosses when he ushered in Glasnost and Perestroika. He knows how to protect himself in the hostile Sovie. . . er, Russian political environment.

    3. A solid ideological foundation. Probabaly Gorby can come up with this.

    I give him a better chance at this than Kasparov had. Gorby is one tough hombre and smarter than the average Soviet.

  3. If I were Putin, I’d encourage a ‘loyal opposition’ party. Very thoroughly castrated, of course.
