Who is Hayden? (Since I don't suppose we're talking of our poster Carl Hayden...)

The new Director of the CIA...
Oh, okay. What's he done wrong for Specter to oppose him?

I assume it's the NSA wiretapping thing, in which Hayden played an important role.

What form of government will they choose? Are there any plans for a restoration?

I assume that it'll be the same form of government they have now...

Montenegro has been quasi-independent for some time and the referendum probably just formalized it. Well, they will have their own national soccer team now, but aside form this it won't make much difference.

Or are there plans to scrap their current constitution?

What happens to the national soccer team now? 

The Montenegrin part of the team secedes from the Serbian part? Wink

Will that mean that the Dutch will have to play matches against both Serbia and Montenegro on the World Cup next month. Wink

I'm pretty sure it will take more than a month for the outcome of the referendum to come into effect. Tongue

Btw, 55% yes is required for independence, but there's no turnout threshold. It's likely going to be quite tight.

There's a turnout threshold of 50%... which has already been passed.

Overview over the campaign contributions Rupert Murdoch has made since 1987:

http://www.newsmeat.com/billionaire_political_donations/Rupert_Murdoch.php

Over the last 20 years he has spend $163,644 for Republican candidates and $80,500 for Democratic candidates.

The really scary part is that good old Rupert donated money to Ted Kennedy in 1994 and 1999. Cheesy

Yes, it did happen, but it was a commujew conspiracy to cover up the fact that the Holocaust a) didn't happen and b) had it happen, it would have been Stalin's and Chairman FDR's fault and not Hitler's.

Who is she?

Dave

The Queen of Jordan / wife of King Abdullah of Jordan. According to BRTD (and I think phknrocket1k), she's "hot". This isn't something I would disagree with, but the questions remains why it is necessary to start half a dozen threads and polls about her whithin a few days' span.

This was inspired by a President Forever scenario I just played (see the respective thread).


Let's assume the presidential tickets in 1992 looked like this:

Pat Buchanan/Pat Robertson (R)
Jerry Brown/Bob Kerrey (D)
Ross Perot/James Stockdale (I)
