    The Congress has got rid of Pranab Mukherjee with a master stroke.

    But the Pranab Mukherjee is a wily chap or else he would not have lasted over all this year without being a wheeler dealer.

    He is well ensconced with the other political parties.

    He is like the Elephant which does not forget.

    Difficult times are ahead of the Congress for all the slights heaped on him; one being when he was not made the Acting PM when Manmohan was sick!

    Could it be that he means that Mukherjee now may not bend like the willow to Congress diktats and to the serious embarrassment of the UPA Govt?

    He could well turn out to be the joker of the pack!

    The Joker's use is greatly varied. Many card games omit the card from use entirely; due to this fact, Jokers are often simply used informally as replacements for lost cards in a deck by writing the lost card's value on the joker. Other games, such as a 25-card variant of Euchre, make it one of the most important in the game. Often, the joker is a wild card, and thereby allowed to represent other existing cards. The term "joker's wild" originates from this practice.

    I am very apprehensive that in times to come, the situation can become very knotty!

    I do not doubt her craft. I do doubt her ability to use the craft to embarrass the First person of the country. It surely will be the end of Sonia if she does try that.

    Congratulation Antonio Maino aka Sonia Madam. After a Puppet PM, Puppet Speaker, Puppet Vice-President. You have again ensured only puppets will sit on Presidents chair like last time (P. Patil). :thumb:

    Pranab Mukherjee became President of India the day his candidature was announced by Congress.

    Congratulations Pranab Mukherjee! Getting to be the president is one of the rarest of the rare honours.

    I don't see Pranab having any sort of a go at the UPA, on the contrary he would like to have it all cordial. If I am not mistaken, his son's political career is still to be made and he would be looking to have it worked out well, and all that won't be possible without the ashirvaad of Sonia Gnadhi.
