ABSTRACT
The article presents the text of a letter about the re-election of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. As the longest-serving Prime Minister in postwar Italy, Berlusconi might be tempted to try to score points off his opponent's youth and inexperience-except that his rival, former Prime Minister Romano Prodi, is 66. Whoever wins, Italy will remain the only West European country with a sexagenarian Prime Minister.
