Now this does look interesting. Yesterday Charles Clarke, not bitter in any way, defended his period as Home Secretary and questioned whether Tony Blair still possessed the authority to lead the party. He lost his job, he's going to be pissed off. However Margaret Beckett did very well out of the reshuffle that saw Clarke booted, she became Foreign Secretary. So her saying Blair and Brown should organise a smooth transfer of power, even if she didn't mean to happen right away, is still pretty major stuff.
