POLITICS: Who's In Charge Here?

This headline reminded me of Dave Barry's comment about the Constitutional Convention, where he discussed how some states wanted a strong president and a weak legislature, some wanted a weak president and a strong legislature, and "delegates from New York wanted a loud president and a rude legislature." The actual story is interesting as well - the UK is openly pushing for the creation of . . . well, a position in the EU without much more authority than Her Majesty. Of course, such a figurehead would embody the bureaucracy in Brussles and become an instant lightning rod, and would it be a German or a Frenchman? Sounds to me like a plan to help undermine the whole project.
