In pure plagarism of the BBC's article on this (http://newsforums.bbc.co.uk...), I was wondering whether any European DDO members or those versed in international affairs had thoughts on not only the prospect of a stable EU presidency, but about the two emerging front-runners (at least so far), Tony Blair and Jean-Claude Juncker?

Bah. It already exists. The Head of State of the country gwith the EU presidency alreaahs this position. http://en.wikipedia.org...

Personally, I think it would work better than it currently is. It's largely administrative and ceremonial.

I do. I can see most continental states joining together, but that would be a very awkward union.

As far as I'm concerned, there doesn't appear to be any way for another war to occur in Europe among powers, unless its external. Federation or not, that is a win.

Probably, it's far from unlikely.
