I beg to differ. I have a lot of disagreements with Raphael, to say
the least. He will definitely not be at the top of my ballot (although I
shouldn't say that until every candidate has shown up) for many reasons.
However, if he gets elected and what he is proposing is set up and
he asks me to take part in it, depending on what it looks like, I'd
probably prefer to be inside rather than watch it from the outside,
because he'll choose people I am perfectly happy to work with, including
Raphael himself. And I don't give a damn about "awareness for public
appearance", if I suck I'd like to hear it even from people who work
with me. It hurts but this is not kindergarten anymore, are we here to
say pretty things to each other or to get work done?
