So much for the claims that the PoR is in disarray and reeling from the shock of losing control of govt. They are on the offensive and no surprise there as freed from their former busy work schedules (while in office) there is lots of time for press releases, public appearances and talk, talk, talk. No mention of how they are keeping govt in check and stagnant while inflation rate soars, 2012 preparations are not getting off the ground, and "work" is not getting done by their doing.

I'm convinced by Levko that there are serious fissures in PoR, still, even while they are on attack.

I predict "change" and that the existing orange coalition will last just long enough for PoR to dissolve and newer, more stable coalitions to be formed.

Will it be as “stable” as the coalition between Clinton, Obama, McCain and Ron Paul?

The Constitution of Ukraine says that the building blocks of a coalition are parliamentary factions. As you remember, it was party-shopping that prompted the President to dissolve Parliament.

If the Party of Regions falls apart and changes its ways, I’ll be the first to celebrate. Such changes will have to be reflected in the next parliamentary election. Until then, however, I can only cite the mounting tension in the Orange camp and the ever-present shyrkadelic ideation of the Party of Regions.

And finally, the word “stability,” when used in the Ukrainian context, carries a rather sadistic connotation to me. You should know that I’m not a big fan of BDSM.
