One has to imagine...

...that this is what the Opposition Parties are talking about in their offices at the moment.

And one certainly hopes that they've got a plan, because like it or not, they're playing with the big boys now.

Look, nobody hired you because you’d be a brilliant campaigner. You’re a beginner in all this. Yes, at the moment, you’re a liability, but you’ll get the hang of it. You’re here because you know how to run a country. The conversation I’m interested in is how do we build a four year plan where you don’t know what kind of Congress you’re going to have to work with.

That’s what transition is about.

I don’t want to wait until transition. I want a plan in place. I want to spend transition hiring a staff that can execute it and on day one I want to get to work, not dickering around for the first three months. You want something to worry about, worry about that."
