And now that his resignation is ‘official’, will he be that which is about more than being wise? Will he be humble? Not in the theatricality of formal self-diminution which Golda Meir put down in one of her Ministers with, “Oh don’t be so humble-humble; you are not that great!” No, not in the sense of an obligatory humility but of genuine preparedness for another person being effective and better than oneself as the party’s sentinel and captain.
