  1. An excellent scenario! I would add more provincialism to the candidates, though, as many would stil identify more with their own countries. For example, Margot Wallström should absolutely lead the Swedish Socialist primaries with 30-35%.

  2. Great scenario, but it looks like the Green party primary & caucus dates are messed up – they all say 01/01/2009, a date which has already passed… Could you possibly put them in line with the other parties dates?

  3. It is an interesting scenario but i would have preferred the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group to have been present as well to begin with. I got round to adding it myself in the end though
