  3. Interesting... I as a Belgian don't feel the need for a president, but I would say the monarchy is dead here. The belgian king only has a ceremonial function anyway, but the King we have now is just a weak figure and boring as hell, and he has no power or influence or whatever.

    For me Boudewijn I (Baudouin?), who died when I was a young teenager is the last king of belgium. He was a person of character and knew what he was doing. I don't see any king like him coming back soon, so I guess our monarchy may not be worth saving anyway...

  4. Thank you for your comment Bram. Boring, however, can be a good thing. American Presidents tend to be colorful figures. Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama, all kept you entertained if nothing else.
