Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Have you cross-posted this (minus the last line) on Daily Kos?

I think the US needs Proportional Representation more than a Parliamentary Government. In fact, realising that both the UK and France have first-past-the-post electoral system goes a long way towards explaining a lot of the current dysfunction in their political systems. France royally screwed itself up, too, by making the Presidential election cycle coincide with the Parliamentary cycle.
