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.

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.

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.

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.
37  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Ukraine 2014 on: April 03, 2014, 11:27:43 pm
Is main reason of Poroshenko support because he's a rich guy, then he won't be a corrupt?
38  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Hungary Parliamentary Election - April 6, 2014 on: April 03, 2014, 04:25:33 pm
This looks like the first EU government re-election since October 2011 in Poland, I believe.

Ours was also re-elected last year ... Wink

Of course. Hope I didn't forget any other election.
Did you forget Frau Angela's reelection?

Who's the favourite to become French European Comissioner after June? Maybe this will be a position for who got out in Cabinet reshuffle, like Ayrault and Moscovici.

Fun election between Darth Vader, princess Leia (Tymoshenko) and Willy Wonka (Poroshenko).

I'll go to Metalist vs. Shakthar game on sunday.

Good that they don't have that damned Habsburg jaw. Remember Emperors Maximilian and Charles V and Charles II (best show of inbreeding).
43  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Egypt gives 529 death sentance on: March 26, 2014, 04:21:22 pm
This is to give a platform to show al-Sisi as pious guy who pardoned hundreds of fundamentalists. I hope that Sabbahi makes a pact with Muslim Brotherhood to win presidential election. Egypt needs to pull a Costa Rica.

Government is purging Right Sector earlier than expected. May be they fear that their actions are counterproductive. Another reason are elections. They fear Yarosh and because many say that.Poroshenko sponsor it, Baktvischina, Svoboda and.UDAR want to get rid of a enemy.

Scanning through the results is a pretty depressing experience.
Not surprising though. The European elections will be fun to watch.

There is room for a new party in France like the M5S in Italy or To Potami in Greece, I wonder if someone will give it a try before 2017...
France have room to a populist non-faruright party. Now we need to know who will lead. Centristes can comeback too.
46  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ukraine Crisis on: March 22, 2014, 02:46:53 pm
I'm at Ukraine now in a hotel ery close to Maidan. Barricades remain and lot of men in camouflaged uniform. Many people selling souvenir and lot of comparisons of Putin and Russians with nazis.

Mormon vote brings Reid ahead.
48  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2008 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: McCain VP Pick on: February 28, 2014, 05:05:12 pm
I still think that McCain had to choose a woman as his running mate, who could have picked up all those votes of the bitterly disappointed Clinton supporters, preferably a minority candidate.
With that said, his best choices would have been Condoleezza Rice or, even better, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from the most important swing state.

I'm not sure about Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, if only because she had never won a statewide election, and I just personally would hesitate with picking Congressmen.

I actually heard that Kay Bailey Hutchison was someone they considered. I think she would have held her own as a pick, but I'm not sure how the base would have liked her and how her ties towards the oil industry in Texas would have played in a national election (remember how they went on and on and on about how Palin "stood up to big oil").

I think they considered Jindal, Pawlenty, Thune, Crist (FL), and Tom Ridge.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is born in Cuba...
And Palin would be useful in fight to a Democratic filibuster proof, as she would bring more votes to Stevens (who failed). Pawlenty could be useful in same way, helping Coleman. Another interesting name could be Mary Fallin, as solid conservative with three terms as Lieutenant Governor and Representative.

In a Crimean Civil War, if Russia opts for a non-belligerant support to separatists (only weapons and logistical), would they be strong enough to keep Ukrainian army from Perekop?
