Romano Prodi Resigns; Bring Back Berlusconi!
Posted by Mike on January 27, 2008
Romano Prodi’s left-wing governing coalition has revived the Italian tradition of collapsing governments after losing a vote of confidence and resumed his hobby of resigning as Prime Minsiter. Former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, leading in the opinion polls, is now demanding a snap election. Although President Napolitano wants to avoid holding an election for a while, I hope they call one. Few world leaders were as pro-America in the middle part of this decade (the late 2000s came pretty quickly, no?) as Silvio Berlusconi.
