Elections in Italy: Prodi seems to have won

Berlusconi makes a fool out of himself. There's no chance left for him to remain in the lead and he's everything but a "vanquisher of the hearts". He still didn't realize that Italy is not a self-service outlet for him, his family and his "honourable friends". 

Update 2:

Prodi won officially in both chambers. Berlusconi still doesn't want to accept the truth but he has to. His only chance to maintain would be a coup d'etat which is very unlikely. Berlusconi, give Italy a break and let Prodi do his work!


Ok, so it's not quite clear what's going on in Italy. When i wrote this Post Prodi seemed to be the clear winner then they said it wasn't that clear-cut but now Prodi seems to have won at least something. It's better to wait until the official results are released.

The Godfather says:

The news say that Romano Prodi won the elections. He beat Berlusconi for the second time and he did that in a very clever way. He attacked Berlusconi's misgoverning of italy, not his dubious dealings. Sanity won and Italy also. Well, but a real Godfather…

High Noon – Berlusconi versus Prodi

The Grandfather will post his comments on the elections after they took place (to keep up the suspense).

Berlusconi winning may not be the best for Italy, but for a real Godfather 😉
