Among the many possible contenders for Brazil’s next president are an ex-army captain, a TV presenter and a former head of state who may be in jail by the time of the election. Now, another eye-catching candidate has thrown his hat into the ring: Fernando Collor de Mello, Brazil’s president from 1990-1992, when he resigned shortly before being impeached on corruption charges.

    Dilma should run, having been helpfully made eligible by the cutting short of her 2nd term. In reality she should be the stand in for Lula if he's barred; though if it was up to me I'd actually prefer her to Lula

    You lost a good opportunity to keep quiet. Why do you pretend you know all about Brazil and its politics ? the fact is you don't, proven by your ridiculous suggestion that Dilma should would be a joke ; even she knows it. Maybe she can run for Congress, where almost any idiot with political backing can get in.
    With your lack of knowledge on the reality of Brazil, wouldn't have been surprised even if you had suggested that CFK run for president of Brazil.
    But as you know so much about Brazil, I'm sure you followed the news reports on the violence during Carnival in Rio....your dear little street kids really went to town....swarming tourists - and locals alike - to rob all their values, and to beat the shit out of them...when not killing them...But please, go to Rio for carnival in 2019.
    You know BK, at times you sound like the fool, who spews his venom in here every now and again, just because he spent a few months here (or so he alleges) in some crappy town - which he refuses to disclose - and tries to give the impression he is an expert on what happens around here. Anyway, just as well it's not 'up to you'...but I have to agree, if the only option were between her and Lula, I'd choose her least every time she opened her mouth on national TV, we'd have a good reason to laugh (at her).
