Suharto seems to still be a powerful family in Indonesia. It appears all of his cronies are grabbing power. Suharto rules from the grave:"BOGOR, Indonesia—In the 1990s, Prabowo Subianto was a feared military commander, the son-in-law of Indonesian strongman Suharto and the alleged force behind the ruler's heavy handed crackdowns against democracy activists.Today, he is the front-runner to become Indonesia's next president.Recent polls put the controversial but charismatic leader of one of Indonesia's smallest parties at the front of the race to succeed President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Though the president's second and final five-year term won't end until 2014, dissatisfaction with his government after a series of corruption scandals and abandoned reforms already is spurring many Indonesians to focus on who will replace him. The outcome could help determine whether Southeast Asia's largest economy continues to be a source of stability and prosperity in the region, or reverts to the chronic instability that scared off investors for years after the Asian financial crisis."cont'dhttp://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405270230444140457747...
