I don’t know if it’s common knowledge to other europeans that he’s seeking this job - though he denies it - but in Denmark; God ! The medias haven’t been talking of anything else for months. It’s as if he’s going to apply for the job as Pope . And then the Turks have objections , mainly because of the Muhammed Cartoons back in 2005-2006
Actually , it’s not his first choice as international leader: he was hoping to get the seat as the first EU-President, but then the irish voters said: No thank You to the Constitution !
I’m actually as european quite happy that he didn’t get the chance to run for that presidency ; Anders Fogh Rasmussen isn’t a visionary EU-thinker like i.e. Spinelli but more the conservative kind of: “EU is OK as it is - don’t try to make it more federalistic. ”
But what I really would like to know: what do other europeans think about Anders Fogh Rasmussen . NATO is no an EU-institution, I’m fully aware of that - but it’s important in Europe .
Do you really care about this politician from the cold North and what his visions for the Alliance is?
