Aznar is a truly horrible person, but I vote to eliminate Rajoy, simply because he is Prime Minister for little over four months now.

While Calvo Sotelo had a relatively brief term, he was an important figure during Spanish transition. No way I'm voting to outs him now.

Almost six actually. Calvo Sotelo has to go relatively soon as a short termer, so I picked him. Giving Rajoy a chance. CS played an important role, but his party imploded under his watch. Not saying he could have prevented that, but still it counts against him.

Good to know that people don't like Aznar & Rajoy here.

I tend to forget about the survivor, sorry people... and thanks, politicus, if it weren't you, this thread would be dead.

Eliminate Calvo-Sotelo, obviously.

Result of round 3, Cavelo-Solta unanimously eliminated!

Round 4, semifinale

Zapaterro, even though he was a true modernizer and a good PM all in all.

But Suarez vs. Felipe is the right finale!

Result of round 4 (semifinale)

Zapatero 5
Suarez 1

Zapatero eliminated. Kinda sad to see him go - most likable of them IMO.

In the finale:

Suarez vs. Felipe Gonzalez


Two great men. Suarez laid the ground work for Spanish democracy, and Felipe built on his legacy, but still its hard to vote against as important and charismatic a leader as Felipe.

My vote: Felipe for survivor
