Before your love for your main man must come your love for your duty and your love for the State. To threaten to resign if one man is not allowed on the Senate is weak. I am not impressed.

For shame. Abandoning their posts and duties over petty matters that could be resolved without such immature action. Mr. Napolitano makes an excellent point, and basically says whatever else I wanted to say regarding this matter.

@Zobel - "...get rid of Euro..."? Yea, the Italian Lira was doing great. 1 US dollar equated to ~1400 Lira. Wow, that will work. Are you kidding?

At deputy, Angela Merkel, whilst having done a good job, is a member of a right wing part. Barack Obama on the other hand heads a more left wing party. Just saying.....

Do what Iceland did and you will be fine.

Italy can learn from Germany, and be ruled by a Great Coaltion. That would solve any problem, as far as socialists accept economic reforms.

Germany and USA are working together to control the world. Better get ready the socialist Nazi Marxist have won majority power and soon you,,,

"Italy is faced with a 2-trillion-euro public debt and youth unemployment of some 40 percent." And this is the *third* largest European Economy? Europe is doomed...

"we need continuity of the government's actions, decisions and its measures to resolve the problems of this country," Sounds like someone who wants control not consensus to me.

The sooner Berlusconi is out of the picture FOR GOOD, the better off Italy will be, just don't send him to the US, we have enough problems with the Obama!

I for one would like to see these individuals who have a great deal of power, influence and ability, do something to help the people of Italy and the rest of the world.

I do have to wonder how much good Silvio Berlusconi could do, if he simply set up a council and decided to lead people directly.

I s it really essential to be involved so deeply with politics? when you could be lifting people up! out of the global sh! temare! so many are trapped in?

Seems like such a waste of so much talent and resources, for so little return. Saying that! who am I to suggest changing the game all together?
