I think that he is what he was. In the 90s, he pushed against the establishment as Health and Welfare Minister and gave the go-ahead to the DPJ policy wonks to cooperate with their LDP counterparts to contain the Asian financial crisis. But he seems to have all the wrong instincts for a “Commander-in-Chief.”
You never know how someone will do in the test of his/her lifetime. I think he lasts until the 2012 DPJ leadership election, but not until the next lower house general election.
