When Is Meg Leaving?

This morning, as I did my usual surfing for news and info, I came across 2 blog posts suggesting that John Donahoe was the likely successor to Meg Whitman as eBay's CEO

Both posts referred to a recent interview of Donahoe by The Financial Times in London. It certainly appears that John Donahoe is next in line to be Meg Whitman's replacement and as he increasingly takes a more upfront, active role, it is clear (to me at least) Meg will be leaving sometime in 08'.

I am already on record as saying I think she will leave by the 3rd quarter of 08' but is it possible she would leave sooner? Perhaps as early as Q1? What do you think? I think it is pretty evident that she will be leaving, maybe the only real question is when? Tell me what you think.
