In the Cold War era, Kremlin watchers used to count the exiting limosines to figure out who was still standing in the top circles of the Soviet government. At 825 North Capitol, DCPS headquarters, you wait for the latest organizational chart to emerge.
The new power grid shows that two of the three top deputies Chancellor Michelle A.
