Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'll take a partial stab at the second point. On the first, since we're not in on the old male clique that so pisses off Wallström and us, we won't know for sure who's in the running. It appears that Solana will be retiring as HRCFSP.

Given the political balance as it now stands, the four top jobs should probably be shared in the following way: 2 EPP, 1 PSE, 1 ELDR. The current arrangement is:

  • Commission President: Barroso (EPP)
  • EP President: Pöttering (EPP) for the second half of the term, Borrell (PSE) for the first half
  • HRCFSP and Council Secretary General: Solana (PSE)

We have met the enemy, and he is us — Pogo
