Sonia Gandhi - the new "mother"?

Its late in the day I know, but it pisses me off. Its when I read people still talking about Sonia Gandhi's "selfless" act of giving up the Prime Ministership! To my mind its simple - she chickened out (kudos to her though for positioning the truth so well). Selflessness all balls. Reminds me of the shit I heard right through early years in school, from hindi classes to moral science and civics : "the mother is the most selfless individual". The rationale / meaning of the statement defeated me then and still does.
