It's now nearly certain Marina Silva will head the ticket. Congressman Beto Albuquerque (PSB-RS), who was running for the Senate, will probably be her running mate.
Beto is a Campos' loyalist. He was 2nd best-voted congressman in RS and served as Infrastructure Secretary at Genro's government. He left job to help Campos. He would be good to attract sympathy votes after he gets national electorate to know his personal drama. His son Pietro died in 2009, after sufering a hard kind of leukaemia where all of solutions were tested, but all failed because lack of compatible donators.

And how do you think that Tulsi Gabbard would do in a primary against Schatz in 2016?

The referees continue to prop up Brazil even now. Thiago Silva should have been sent of for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity, but I guess a repeat of last match is not wanted now.
And Robben who threw himself?

Plinio de Arruda Sampaio, 83, died yesterday after a bone cancer. He started in politics in Democratic Christian Party and was expelled from Congress by military coup in 1964. After amnesty, he joined Workers Party (PT) and served again in Congress and ran for Săo Paulo's governorship in 1990. In 2005, he switched parties and went to far-left Socialism and Freedom Party (PSOL), running again for governorship in 2006. He gained national popularity during 2010 presidential campaign, where he was seen as "crazy funny old guy" who was very popular in social networks, but he gained only 0.87% of votes. RIP!

A good what-if could be Wallace making an unholy alliance with anti-war progressives, like McCarthy and McGovern, while Kennedy sits out, endorsing him undercover in hope that he gets nomination and lose to support him on 72. With Southern support, he gets nomination.

Peace won.
But Zuluaga almost-victory can make Santos to get better terms in peace negotiations.

With Renzi government so solid, should be time for Napolitano get out of Quirinale? Or he'll remain, as a Presidential Election would be a mess?

I doubt that FIFA in current standards will give it to Belgium and Netherlands. People in that countries can have a similar reaction, like in Brazil. They wouldn't like to deal with Blatter and Valcke. 2026 would be good to be in North America (USA or Mexico). 2030, centennial cup would be good placed on a comeback to Africa, maybe in Morocco or in a post-El Sisi's democratical Egypt. If in Europe, England would make a great choice. In 2034, go back to Asia, on China or India.

Marine Le Pen should try to get maybe one of Germans, like ÖDP or FAMILIE. Korwin-Mikke is too libertarian to be one of her group. Or she should go "pragmatical" and accept Jobbik, at least.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: EP elections 2014 - Results Thread on: May 26, 2014, 03:41:03 pm
Will the far right get his group?

I guess the UKIP and Afd will never caucuse with them.
FN, FPÖ, PVV, VB, LN and SD would join them, but problem is to get additional seat. They'll need to choice to accept one of far-far-right people (NPD, Jobbik or Golden Dawn) or try to take ANEL from ECR or accepting DUP.
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Panamá 2014 on: May 05, 2014, 05:29:36 pm
Juan Carlos Varela won.
I think that it was first time that PRD voters went with Panamenista candidate.

Close example of a healthy Islamic Constitutional Monarchy are Jordan and Morocco, although not so democratic.

Interesting that I saw that Hoskins played a lot of historical people (Mussolini, John XXIII, Khruschev, Pinneaple-face and others).

And among candidates in debate, Verhofstadt is the most likely Comission President.

May Crist and Nelson compromise over switching seats in 2018. Nelson runs for governor and Crist for Senate.

I like what it says about her ideologically though. The SPU are just barely reformed Communists (they actually endorsed Simonenko in the last presidential election). It looks like there's finally a candidate who's both pro-Revolution and unambiguously left-wing.
SPU supported Orange Revolution, but they made a corrupt bargain with Yanukovich supporting him for PM in exchange of Parliamentary speakership. Then, party started to go down. When I was in Kiev, in Maidan, there were places getting signatures for Bogomolets nomination. I read in Wikipedia that she's very rich by her side, being Ukrainian top dermatologist, with some patents.

What happened? The non-French speakers want to know too!
Vive le pork!

Panzer's said that the new FN mayors won't let schools serve menus with religious considerations. Basically taking away halal and kosher.

All in the name of laďcité, of course.
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ukraine Crisis on: April 05, 2014, 01:35:12 pm
A gas relief operation would be a good way to help Ukraine without a dramatic. I think that one of worse things to happen due to Crimean anexation was full Russian control of Azov straits, depriving Ukraine of ports like Berdyansk and Mariupol. A gas relief effort, building gas terminals in Southwest Ukraine would be interesting.

Fidesz started as a young right-wing neoliberal party, but failure of Democratic Forum government made them  to have to absorve historical anticommunist and nationalist vote. Órban's second term is a Hungarian version of Putin with increased nationalism and social conservatism with a new constitution. Opposition is not very well managed and they made a suicidal strategy accepting Gyurcsány back.

Is main reason of Poroshenko support because he's a rich guy, then he won't be a corrupt?
