Fredrik Reinfeldt.

If Sigursdardottir wins this I'll be a bit embarassed. The woman has been in power less than a year and leads a teeny, tiny country that tried to get rich fast by reckless financial transactions and connections with the Russian mafia.

She isn't bad or anything but she hasn't done anything and is like half the leader of any of the last 10 or so.

The time to not be at least 'a bit' embarassed passed a while ago.* The Maldives aren't exactly larger than Iceland... and what has Reinfeldt done? (Apart from leading one of the least offensive major conservative parties to a rare electoral victory? Mind you, with First World Conservative leaders, never hearing their name again after they win is the best thing you can reasonably ask for.) But, say, what, other than double the population, distinguished him from John Key?
But hey, that happens with compromise choices. All of these three reflect a reasonablish compromise. (Though the levels of reasonableness might vary. But quite frankly, after all the sh!t that went down, I begrudge you the pleasure of "victory". A little bit. But enough to motivate my vote. Tongue )

*India is a democracy, or sort of. But dead0man was on to something with that early vote against them based on Freedom House or whatever he used. It's hardly a very free and fair place to live in. And the INC must bear the lion's share of the blame. Last times' victory was understandable due to the surprise ouster of the BJP government, but defending the title would have been quite undeserved. My last two votes were actually tactical votes to get Manmohan Singh out.

I disagree. I've been annoyed for quite a while true, but I wouldn't be embarassed by either Reinfeldt or Nasheed. Or Singh.

And I liked Key so that doesn't sway me. Tongue

Believe it or not, we don't have that crossed d on Aussie keyboards, and there is no commonly accepted substitute, so I went with the one that at least had a d of some kind Smiley

She isn't bad or anything but she hasn't done anything and is like half the leader of any of the last 10 or so.

You could say the same thing about Nasheed. Yeah he ousted a long-standing dictator and that's awesome, but there were other leaders voted off who also fought for democracy in countries more important than one with less population than my city that has virtually no economy beyond tourism, much like those Carribean and Oceania leaders who got voted for leading "joke countries". He also has been in office for less than a year in an even smaller country than Iceland.

I'm not anti-Nasheed and wouldn't be too bothered by him winning (and I think he will actually), but he's not really any more important than Sigursdardottir.

I'm not anti-Nasheed and wouldn't be too bothered by him winning (and I think he will actually), but he's not really any more important than Sigursdardottir.

Nasheed, from what I recall has been an important political figure for a long time. Mandela would have deserved to win after a year in office, even if it had only been a year. Sigurdardottir just got in because everyone else was so tainted by Iceland's collapse. She hasn't, as far as I know, done anything to get there the way Nasheed did. I'm not saying Nasheed should be the winner either (I'm rooting for Reinfeldt out of the remaining ones) and I wouldn't have picked any of the remaining 3 for the win. My sole point is that Sigurdardottir is less deserving than the other 2 and less deserving than most of the finalists.

About half as long as Sigurdardottir...
