Italian Supreme Court rules on the Elections

The Italian Supreme Courts confirms the results of the elections.
Not a big surprise, but maybe a starting point to accept each other.
Prodi won, not by much. Berlusconi lost, not by much. Still, there we are.

Italian democracy shows parallels with the US. Prodi introduced the idea of the primaries. Also, we now have an election evntually decided by the supreme court. The parallel stops there, but the coincidence is interesting.

Needless to say, Berlusconi will have something to say about the supreme court. Probably, he'll say that they are a bunch of communists. Let's just smile at that.
The nightmare, for today, is over. Now, we have to work towards the dream of a better Italy within a great Europe for the sake of a just world.
