I think I wrote in this blog some years ago that Veltrone could have been the Italian Zapatero. He missed his occasion while he was the secretary of the PDS and he retired to Roma’s municipality announcing a subsequent trip to Africa.
Now, coherence is not always a politicians’ characteristic, he tries again.
I think he can win. Not so much for his qualities as for the dis-qualities of his adversaries, from left to right.
He just need to have, and to show, a little bit more of courage (not one of his most obvious feature) and he might take over from his historical predecessors, a long line of Christian Democrats governors.
