Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I try to imagine realistic candidates. A fey years against it would have been Bildt for the right against Prodi for the left. Perhaps Barroso, perhaps Juncker


a) no big country: Italy is the upper limit here

b) no small country bad luck for an aspiring politician from Malta or Cyprus

c) no new countries. So no eastern european. Cyprus disqualified once again

So politicians from mid-sized western european countries will be most sought after: Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain. Perhaps one day Poland.
