Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All I'm saying is that the way the President of the Council post is being portrayed and perceived in the MSM is quite different to the way the President of the Commission is being portrayed and perceived, and although that may not always be well grounded in the job spec and mode of election of either post, and may thus grate with the eurocognoscenti, it may not altogether be a bad thing that they are perceived so differently.  Whether this difference of perception will prove long lasting or not is of course a separate issue and may well depend on the first incumbent of the Council post.
