Aule has just left Hobbiton.

I agree whole heartedly about Saruman, it always seemed to me that he was a stoog made to feel like a big man because he had the backing of some more powerful than himself. A bit like Lotho back in the Shire.

Just because Saurman was the head of the White Council did not make him the more powerful, as it was Gandalf that a few of the others wanted (Galadriel for certain) as the head. But i think he refused as he didn't want to be cooped up so that he couldn't go around the place meddling in the affairs of the Dark Lord
For him that is pitiless, the deeds of pity are ever strange and beyond reckoning - of Melkor before his final downfall
