The Assembly leader, Mike German, is in a quandary... despite his extensive experience, his time of leadership reckoning is at hand - which way will he go?
We've been waiting for this for some time - the point when the first leadership battle in Welsh politics since the May 2007 election begins in earnest.
It is the Liberal Democrats who are going to face up to making a decision on who runs their party for the next few years at their annual conference in Aberystwyth.
Current Assembly group leader Mike German will make it clear if he will try to stay or if he will step down.
The case for him going?
Well he has been in charge for eight years, failed to negotiate the Lib Dems into government after May and has not been able to add any extra Assembly seats to his party's tally.
But the other view is that he is uniquely experienced, both as a politician and as a former government minister, having served as Deputy First Minister in a coalition with Labour.
And he has been at the helm of a party which has gained Westminster seats and councils.
Lib Dem rules mean there has to be a leadership election within a year of the Assembly election and we know that at least two of his colleagues think there should be at least a challenge if not a change of leader.
We will know today when Mike German makes his position clear.
He will be on the programme with me too and there is a slim chance he might break his self-imposed silence on the matter.
But it has got me thinking - now the Lib Dems are at least considering a change of leader, how long till the other parties start eyeing up their bosses and wondering when they will shuffle off?
