First Among Equals

The ten candidates for the position of President of New Zealand have been announced. Chosen by you, the people:
  • James Belich
  • Jim Bolger
  • Sir Douglas Graham
  • Sir Robert Jones
  • Sir Kenneth Keith
  • Don McKinnon
  • Claudia Orange
  • Vincent O'Sullivan
  • Dame Kiri Te Kanawa
  • Sir Wilson Whineray
Not a bad list. Trust the people. They aren't morons.

The great kiwi archetype runs through all nominees. Am looking forward to the next round of voting. I nominated Jeremy Wells, so it will be interesting to read the candidate profiles before the next vote.
