Cindrella syndrome
 n.— «Although many of these new rules may not take effect until the last days of the Bush administration or the first days of the next presidency, White House officials say they are the result of a deliberate and patient process, not the “Cinderella syndrome” of rushing to act before the next Inauguration Day.» —“A Legacy Bush Can Control” by John M. Broder in Washington, D.C. New York Times Sept. 9, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
