After Sonia, who?
Problem for Congress is Hindutva is spreading in society as a whole.Add to that it lacks charismatic leaders in its ranks.
Definition of Hindutav.
The way people are targeting MMS rather than entire Congress, they are doing favor to Congress by making him scapegoat which Congress itself wants. Won't be surprised if Priyanka steps in if not Rahul.
The image of Indira Gandhi if projected in Priyanka, people will again become emotional.
With the help of these much scams, even it won't be easy for (late) Indira Gandhi to win the LS elections. Forget about Priyanka.
People are not fool now.
After sonia ,her daughter priyanka
After Sonia, Priyanka will lead Cong. After her, well her daughter, foreign name and all.
Let's see if the nation survives the disaster called sonia first...
Paaji, your prayers may be answered soon,

Are Indian jsnta ready to get fooled?

After me, the Deluge!
Chidambaram will be torn apart.
Renuka Chaudry is a good bet.
He was hysterically guffawing in yesterdays TimeNow debate just to while away the time so that she did not have to answer for answers that were not there and she was at sixes and sevens!
She called others clowns etc, but she came out as the Fat Woman Freak of Barnum and Bailey!
The other chap had no chance to answer since she loudly interrupted, did drama with her body movement and eyebrow raising squawking inanities of no value and drowning all including Goswami.
If anyone came out badly in that debate, notwithstanding Goswami desperately trying to help her out, is was she.
And what a clown she was!
Ideal choice for the Congress as PM - this drama Queen and a Clown in the Fat Woman Act of Branum and Bailey 5 Ring Circus!
Renuka Chowdary has the ability to fight on the street.There is a reason N.T Rama Rao nominated her for the Rajya Sabha when she was in TDP.Brigadier that woman is not born and bred congress variety
If Priyanka has political ambitions, which she has, she wonâ€™t enter the race so soon. She will wait for Rahul to be of no further use to the Congress, a spent force.
I still feel most commentators are writing off Rahul a little too early. Recall the â€™09 general election, and the congress tally in UP was to take a hike and he was pushed rather aggressively since till the â€™12 UP state elections when the bubble was to burst, and how during this period Rahul was to the best thing that had happened to the congress, the youth icon of the country and what not.
Wait for some time, my sense is, sometime around next year, the latter half, when 9-12 months are left for the next general elections, Rahul will either get a ministry of his choice or will get to be the PM, most likely the PM and then he will go all out reforming and correcting all wrong, and the most important, there will be results to show, and yet again a very strong aura through a media campaign will be built around him.
Donâ€™t forget the rather famous words of Harold Wilson, and I quote â€œA week is a long time in politicsâ€ and we are still 20 odd months from next general elections. Image is about perceptions, and perceptions do keep changing. Even with growth at 5%, UPA is sitting on tons and tons of money, and they will dole it out big time this time round.
Who after Sonia? It should be Rahul.
As the next PM?
It all depends if they can win and cobble a Coalition.
As the Leader of the Congress Party?
It is anointed!
Whatever you said in the post, that makes sense.
But a couple of things, I would like to say, if you don't mind please.
1) Few days back they tried their best so that Rahul can become PM. Then it was Sharad Pawar who fixed a spanner there.
Now as you said the timeline 8- 12 months before 2014 general elections, what if someone try it again.
2) It will be nice to see what Rahul will do as a PM, if a big ticket scam pops up just before the next general elections.
1) I think cash will do a lot of talking around this time. The needs of NCP could change for all we know, likewise same thing could be done with other trouble makers.
2) Hahaha .......... that should ruin whatever little hope Congress will have through him, and we shouldn't be surprised if BJP would have kept a few cards covered and waitinf to expose at the right time.
Mind you, my saying Rahul in '14 in no way means Rahul as the PM then, but yes, the face that will take Congress to the polls, if not Sonia. though it should still be Sonia if she is around.
The Congress has been a real disappointment.
One had such great hopes!
