Madrilenian Regional Elections


Recommended Posts

For anyone who's following the Madrilenian regional elections, here is the best site which updates it's count every few minutes.

On a side note, Isabel Díaz Ayuso (PP) the kind-of governor of Madrid, is one of my favorite politicians in Europe since a long time and I think she'd be superb as Spanish prime minister one day.

In fact, @ConservativeElector2, for fun, and a more productive approach, I'll list as many right-wing leaders of the 20th and 21st Century I find exemplary, admirable, and worthy of respect, even if only under the context they were known for, and you do the same for left-wing leaders of the 20th and 21st Century, and we'll try to break stereotypes. I'll start:

-Winston Churchill

-Charles de Gaulle

-Arnold Schwarzenegger

-John Diefenbaker

-Peter Lougheed

-Hussein, King of Jordan

-Lee Kwan-yew

-Paul Kagame

-F.W. De Klerk

-Edward Heath

-Mike DeWine (mostly due to COVID handling coverage)

-Yulia Timoshenko

I think that's a good start. You're move!

That's certainly a good list and thank you for providing it. I'll give you credit for showing right-wingers you appreciate - at least a bit. That's constructive!.

Lastly I wouldn't include Yulia Timoshenko, but okay.

Today I won't come up with a list anymore, but maybe when I have the time to do it.

@ConservativeElector2Do I get the pleasure of seeing your list today?

You would have gotten the chance today anyway, but thanks for the reminder. 

Here I've put up a list of people, generally associated with the left of the center, who I view positively for varying aspects but mostly derived from their personality, trustworthiness etc. I am sure I forgot some people, but yeah I tried my best... Let's start with what I'd call the favorable opposition in the US and let's move on to the stage of world politics afterwards.

Modern US:
Walter Mondale
Andrew Yang
Al Gore
Chris Todd
Dianne Feinstein
Jay Rockefeller 
Blanche Lincoln
Steven Chu
Antony Blinken
 
Benjamin Harrison
Rutherford B. Hayes
Lula da Silva (Brazil)
Arnaud Montebourg (France)
Fleur Pellerin (France)
Katharina Barley (Germany)
Dietmar Bartsch (Germany)
Eleftherios Venizelos (Greece)
Manmohan Singh (India)
Hatoyama Yukio (Japan)
Shimon Peres (Israel)
Susana Díaz (Spain)

I’m genuinely surprised by Al Gore
