Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's one of the reasons why I support the Lisbon treaty: it ends the pillar structure, gives the Commission the role of main executive power in all areas and expands the codecision procedure on important issues.

Also, a president of the Council doesn't have to be a bad thing, but a lot depends on who is playing this role how and who's gonna be foreign minister (of Commission AND Council, potentially a more powerful job).

All the more reasons to stop Blair.
