Putin reaffirms plans to step down


There's always a but. See emphasized words below.

If Hillary Clinton becomes President, do you really think Bill will not have a certain amount of influence?

Putin as prime minister will still have enormous leverage. The guy isn't stupid.
Mr Putin, who is widely popular in Russia, said he would not stay on as president, despite a chorus of calls from lawmakers and others. Last month, however, he indicated he would consider becoming prime minister. [emphasis mine]

Or, as another Bill said:

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,

And most of them are engaged in farce.
