RFV for the adjectival sense:
- (of a politician, party or faction etc) in power
This sense is not listed in the OED, although it is prima facie consistent with the phrase's etymology. As a side issue, is this phrase an adjective at all? I thought it was an adverb, although the distinction in this case is unclear to me. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 02:58, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
