LOL Kevin Rudd as a liberal. He's far from being a liberal. Hell, Malcolm Turnbull the new leader of the Liberal Party is more liberal than him!

abortion isn't a really a world issue

To alot it is. Its an issue in all the civilized nations in the world outside of the far far far far left european nations. Most areas have enough pro lifers to make it an issue.

In the 'uncivilized' nations, abortion is not seen as important because stuff like food and a stable life in general takes precedence. (Besides, it's already considered wrong in most of those countries) Just like you don't hear of gay rights in Zimbabwe, Moldova, Tanzania or Albania since just about the entire population considers it wrong in those states.

I agree it shouldn't be a world issue. If it is, make it non-important. Is there a way to get certain areas caring more about an issue than others?

And abortion is an issue in those "far far far far left european nations" you speak about. The USA is the only nation where it's such a big issue though. (Followed probably by Italy and some Central American/South American countries, in Nicaragua many women have died because they aren't allowed to abort their fetuses even at risk of death)

Some of the candidates are in the wrong place... Rajoy, Hague and Davis are not significant politicians. McAleese is not even a politician - she is a ceremonial office-holder. (So is Dmitry Medvedev!) No country outside Italy would vote for Berlusconi (except maybe Ireland?). Fukuda is not a liberal - the Japanese LDP is conservative, like the Australian Liberals - though Koizumi would be an interesting liberal or conservative. I suspect the same is true for Roh. Prachanda would be a good socialist, as one of the most successful revolutionaries of the 21st century.

Why would Berlusconi be so unelectable. My italian politics aren't very good. Is it a catholic thing?

Here's my idea for the starting polls (General Election Wise)

Without the Pope:

Conservative 32%

Liberal 33%

Social Democrat 20%

Islamist 10%

Socialist 5%

With the Pope:

Conservative 25%

Liberal 30%

Socialist Democrat 18%

Islamist 10%

Socialist 5%

Pope 12%

I'll post the regional polls later.

I've worked on something like this a couple of times, and one of my opinions is that it would be a whole lot easier/more enjoyable if the election were structured differently, i.e. if either plurality won or there was a runoff (runoff probably more fun). It's almost impossible for anyone to get 50%+1 since there are so many parties and they're so sectionalized.
