26 Ibid. (emphasis added). See also p. 562, ‘These goals emerge as quite rational for an executive branch that has not only had difficulty establishing a lasting party of power, but that is also bracing itself for Russia's next power struggle.’ Note that at the time the original article was written, and even by the time it was accepted for publication (in autumn 2006), Putin's decision to serve as prime minister – which facilitated the surprisingly smooth transition to the Medvedev administration – was largely unanticipated. Yet, as I note in the original article, there was reason to believe that Putin would seek a third, non-continuous term (p. 550).
