Open letter to Massimo D'Alema

Comic strip by: Massimo Ciotoli

The President of the Republic cannot have shadows. Nor can he have possible skeletons in the cupboard.
In the past we have had an Antelope Cobbler and I believe that that is enough.
I maintain that our President should be super partes, have the respect of the Nation, have done something important in his life, not a professional politician.
The men and the women are there. They are called Monti, Hack, Sartori. What are the merits of DíAlema?
Iím worried. The President of the Republic must represent Italians. DíAlema represents one faction within his party. I have decided to write him an open letter.

ďDear Massimo DíAlema,

Iím writing to you having heard that you may possibly be elected as Head of State.

I believe that, especially in a complex and delicate moment like this one, that who becomes President of the Republic must offer to Italian citizens absolute guarantees of transparency and of trustworthiness. For this reason, and not because I am prejudiced about you, I believe that it would be useful for us, and for you, to remove any shadow of doubt in relation to your role in Unipol Ďs attempt to buy the BNL.

According to authoritative sources that have not been denied even after the publication of articles in the newspapers, that the investigators have telephone tapping information that relates to yourself in relation to this which document interviews between yourself and the head of Unipol Gianni Consorte.

Before Parliament, gives you our trust to guide Italy, I believe that we should also ask you to clear up once and for all what was said in those conversations. This should be done before they could be made known through other channels which might bring serious damage and could even cause harm to the image of the future Head of State.

Thus I think it is a duty for you to ask for the publication of the whole content of the conversations that were recorded by telephone tapping. Alternatively, I believe you should give a guarantee on your own responsibility that they are false and they donít exist, before the election in Parliament.

Massimo D'Alema

I'm sicillian, and you views of the United States make me sick! Hard to still change those ex-communist ways? Remember 9-11 ? What was just about that? I love Italy, Italians, and Sicillians, But you have to earn respect.!
"We are friends of the United States, but less obsequious when it comes to choices we don't believe are just," D'Alema told reporters on a visit to Sicily.
, who is aiming for a swift withdrawal of Italian troops from Iraq, also signalled Italy under Prime Minister Romano Prodi would draw closer to its traditional European allies.

US relations with Italy have undergone a shift since conservative Berlusconi, one of Bush's closest international allies, lost April's general election to Prodi's centre-left coalition.

I wish a woman for President!
It would be a real sign of change!
Emma Bonino, or Tina Anselmi.

Ciao all,

I fully agree with you Beppe.

....Yet, D'alema cannot be President of the Italian Republic as so many people who voted for the center-left coalition would have liked that he had resigned as president of DS party because of:

1) so many mistakes committed once he was premier (bicamerale etc etc etc...)

2) yet, for not having resigned as shadows raised after the attempt of Unipol to merge with BNL.

A center-left elector
