In a front-page editorial today, the CCP's official People's Daily newspaper speaks out against "the creation of empty 'bubbles'" of political point-taking among Party and government officials as they jockey for positions in leadership reshuffles this year. The editorial urges that decisions about advancement and placement of officials happen in a "scientific" manner, taking into account "real accomplishments." The editorial reads: "Some local areas have a mania for big 'prestige projects', and other things are pushed aside for these; other local areas only care only about obvious achievements and don't prioritize less obvious achievements . . . "

Chongqing's populist Party secretary Bo Xilai (薄熙来), a top contender for a position on China's powerful Politburo Standing Committee in next year's leadership transition, told a meeting of Party newspaper editors this week that "socialism is superior to capitalism in that it thinks about the majority of people, about common prosperity." "This is a road different to that of the West," said Bo, "and it is a road that the Chinese people must and can take." But Bo Xilai warned Party leaders against complacency and inactivity, saying that if they were "overcautious and indecisive, warily protecting their own 'shuttlecocks', then they would be unable to accomplish anything."
