Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course the optimal solution would be a single-transferable voter system with an open field. But again, what would be the dynamics in that case? What do you do when you have dozens of candidates campaigning in two dozen countries?

To judge by the experience of the Gray Davis recall election in California, you'd basically have a celebrity popularity contest, and Schwarzenegger (as suggested elsewhere in this thread) would win.

Now seriously, who would be the European celebrity politician most likely to win an open field election?

I distribute. You re-distribute. He gives your hard-earned money to lazy scroungers. -- JakeS
