Well, they haven't called me yet!
But what I do not understand is why anyone would even want to run the TS  
when to run for high office in the US these days only requires the ability to  
herd moose.

How to take over The Theosophical Society in twelve swift steps

1.  When invited by the President to be Vice-President, accept. When
she  nominates you again twice, accept. Be sure to keep a distance,
physical and  psychological, from the International Headquarters, for
example, by calling  it "a symbolic headquarters" in one of your
Convention lectures.

2.  When the President experience a recoverable health problem, contact
the  head of a leading antipodal Section and invite her to be your VP.
When she  says that such matter should be referred to the President
agree with her  position, albeit reluctantly. When the President says
she can still conduct  her duties and is going on a European tour,
express outrage and abandon her  to her luck.

3. In the following months, contact key workers at Adyar  about The
Plan. Be sure not to contact Indian members because of their  silly and
traditional devotion and loyalty to the elected President of  the
Theosophical Society. Ideally, contact workers from a Latin  American
background because of their emotional volatility and  their
impressionability to "The Big Chief" archetype.

4. The  foundation of The Plan is to convince as many members as
possible that the  President is unwell, has erratic behaviour,
inconsistent memory, cannot  articulate coherent words anymore and has
a damaged brain. 

5. Get  the selected key workers at Adyar to write letters to General
Council  members, even before they receive the official papers from the
Secretary,  saying that you don't really want to be President but under
the  circumstancesâ Be sure that at least one of the key workers is
from the  Secretary's Office where all the membership records are kept.

6. When  one of their letters, declaring that you have agreed to accept
nomination,  is tabled at the Council meeting remain silent.

7. When the voting  results are declared, blame the Indian Section.

8. Start a series of  messages attacking the structure of the Society,
the Executive Committee,  the President and the Indian Section.

9. Invite General Council members  to join your self-created caucus
(The Plan B) and ask their permission to  circularize their messages.

10. When very few messages arrive form the  Ahamkara Quartet and send
out a proposal to substantially curtail the  President's constitutional
prerogatives and to eliminate the direct vote by  members world wide in
the election of the President.

11. Hold fast  thy senses, thy mind, thy heart and thy consciousness
against the great  heresy of Brotherhood and Oneness. Dwell on I-ness.

12. If anything  goes wrong, call Chuck.
