Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's no point making a petition against Blair at this point.

When it was going to be an appointed position, it made sense to picket the appointers to not pick an embarrassment.

If there is a Continent-wide election, people will be free to campaign for or against the actual prople running for the office.

A generic campaign against the idea of an elected president is less clear cut than a campaign against Blair personally. And campaigning against the elected president because of who supports the idea also lacks conviction.

When it comes to voting in a race between Merkel for the EPP and Blair for the PES, we can have a campaign handing people free barf bags.

Campaigning against Blair being nominated or endorsed by particular political parties is also a possibility, but not at this stage.
