When a tyrant is killed or resigns after, for instance, decades into power, we struggle to consider if the news as true. Sorry Silvio, to make this parallel with your story but when I read the news about your resignation on Nov. 8, I smiled and whispered : "Silvio, I don't believe you".
An you know why ? Because Berlusconi is a businessman, a fighter and a self made man.
Silvio Berlusconi is not a politician, he has learnt how to deal with them. He has still the businessmen attitude like Mitt Romney, the Massachusetts Governor and the Republican candidate for the primaries has.
Just a few seconds after the vote at the Italian Parliament, the current Italian Prime Minister handwrote a note with his short term strategy: new coalition, elections, resignation, go to the President of the Republic or another solution. Even in a moment of hardship, Berlusconi has the ability to project himself ahead. And I'm sure he told to himself "you won't get rid of me so easily !".
