Regarding ‘Hunt continues for women to fill top EU posts‘:
Why not invite Arianna Huffington to be EU president. She is Greek, educated in England, politically savvy, extremely well-connected globally, a businesswoman, started up and runs a large, complex, organisation (The Huffington Post), is multilingual, etc.
She would add a touch of class and glamour to the position and an inveterate networker would help build consensus across the EU. Her managerial skills and ability to delegate would fulfil the administrative needs of the office of president.
Come home, Arianna. Europe needs you.
