I get the feeling that you are of the opinion that Dr. Solana is NOT going to step down.
While reading your commentaries, I could almost see you give a little nudge-nudge and wink-wink.
Do you feel that Dr. Solana is using his possible retirement as a means to an end and will infact not retire but gain even more power if that's possible? Or do you feel he is or has groomed his successor, and if so who do you think will get the job? How will this affect your whole argument about how Dr. Solana fits into end times prophecy?
