OK — I’ll throw my hat in the ring with a crowd-pleasing long shot:David Rubenstein will be drummed out of Carlyle Group.The Company will cotmelpe the purchase of Focus Media, but will promptly find its new acquisition to be a tungsten block with a layer of gold-ish spray paint. But this alone will not be the catalyst.Rubenstein’s exit will be precipitated by the disclosure that his personal stake in Focus Media was enormous and that he orchestrated the buy-out as an exit strategy to the detriment of the other GP directors. Then the knives come out….NB — I have zero basis for making the foregoing statements and offer them for their comic value alone!Cheers from NYC!
