Putin will eventually overplay his political hand and his own party and president will want to get rid of him, Soviet or Soprano style. Putin cannot rule without the legitmatcy of the Office of President. Even the worse slacker would want the attention and power and will not share it with Putin. Putin wishful thinking will get him deep sixed.

We can only hope.

I've long thought that you don't have a democracy until you've had three elections that change the ruling party. The first election is the revolution. The second is a test of humility. The third proves your country has the habits of democracy.

Russia so far has had only the first election. Putin is part of Yeltsin's old party, and he's bought up all the other parties, except those Communists.
