I view this development with acute skepticism and some amusement. No suprise, though.

Honestly, did anyone expect someone else to be appointed PM?

Man, she's actually qualified AND has those kind of looks.

I might be persuaded to support an Amendment to allow foreign-born Americans to run for President if she moves here....

She has held posts as the director of United Energy Systems of Ukraine, chair of the Parliament Budget Committee, and the Cabinet post of vice prime minister for fuel and energy. Tymoshenko also led the united democratic opposition for some while.

Well, I can say that she is a babe. And given her resume, she at least appears to be qualified for the job. Now, will she be a great PM, that has yet to be seen. However, at least on paper, she appears that she will be one.

At one point Tymoshenko controlled over 20% of the Ukrainian economy. Her personal net worth is estimated to be eleven billion dollars. Billion, not million.

The Kuchma faction pushed Tymoshenko out, she pushed back, Kuchma is out, and trying to escape Khodorkovsky's fate. "Who's the new boss, same as the new boss," as The Who put it.

My suspicion is that we have been seeing a struggle between two factions of the oligarchy. The "democracy" stuff was a means, not an end.

That site is utter self congratulation and propaganda. Really lays it on thick.

A couple weeks ago I Googled up her name and read a number of links and news articles about Tymoshenko. Her personal biography is consistent with how ostensibly neutral sources were describing her career.

In any case, I posted it because a couple posts seemed to be dismissing her qualifications based on her babeness. ;) Her resume is what it is regardless of her motivations.

No need to. She's tougher than The Iron Lady... with looks. She'll do just fine... and sure as h*l* does not need a guardian.
