Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the stormy present:
Ah.  So any woman named to this position would be a "token"?

Neelie Kroes (if you want a commissioner with a track record)
Mary Robinson (if she could be persuaded)
DALIA GRYBAUSKAITE (if you want someone with both a Commission and an electoral track record)
Tarja Kaarina Halonen

All have more substantial track records.  The only problem was they're not British.
