The scariest ever comment from a corporate CEO, until the next Morning Report interview with a corporate CEO

There's still a lot of water to go under the bridge.
In context, this translates as "it is far too early to talk about those decisions and events, until such time as these decisions and events are already fixed and it is too late to talk about them."

The Great Gazoogle suggests that there is prior art for "There's [still / yet] [a lot / plenty] of water to go under the bridge". It is that rara avis, a verbal car-crash which did not come from a cloth-eared speaker-for-cliches right-wing columnist.

"We'll cross that bridge once we get this horse to drink all the damned water."
