Ku Li must be a threatening figure to many of his contemporaries (politicians) during his early heydays. When you become the finance minister you must be up and coming and perhaps groomed for the pinnacle (Zahid excluded!). If he was on a fast track and overtaken by ambition or arrogance then it would not be as bad as wanting to be the youngest PM.
When people feel (their interests) threatened, their insecurity and jealousy will concoct ways and means to rid off the cause. However, there were also politicians who were ambitious and used or colluded with him to promote their agenda. If the UMNO leader at that time was a weakling than Ku Li would gain to be the PM. He was outmatched by TDM.
Now that UMNO-BN is a weakling Ku Li’s service is needed more than ever. With the ups and downs he has undergone, he should be a much wizened and down to earth politician.
