And a tip from Charlie Skelton on up and coming power hungry who are attending this year's Bilderberg meetings::
The talk of Turin is that Cardinal Parolin is in with a shout to be the next Pope. Bilderberg is well known for inviting rising stars to their conference: Governor Bill Clinton in 1991 is a good example. This year it’s Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, who’s been touted as a candidate for the Democrats in 2020.
My own hot tip is for Canada’s Minister of International Trade to become Prime Minister. I watched François-Philippe Champagne leave the airport and get into his limo, and in that short time he shook hands with everyone around him. Lots of eye contact, smiles, cheery remarks—completely at ease. A born politician. If he shakes the right hands and kisses the right rings at Bilderberg, he’s a shoe-in.-RW
