ITALY : Competing PM Pols...Silvio And Mario...Adopt Pooches; Bersani Needs Monte In Coalition.
It's a officially a dog-eat-dog world...in Italy's race to elect a PM.
Silvio Berlusconi has adopted a 2-month old half wolf/golden retriever stray (foto) allegedly from the streets of Sicily.
Slippery Silvio named the bitch...Vicky.
Not to be left behind...current technocrat PM Mario Monte adopted a purebred maltese in Milano...that he named Empatia/Empathy.
Both dogs may prove to be more popular than the 2 pols.
: Final polling shows that because of a recent Silvio surge to 29%...left leaning candidate Pier Luigi Bersani needs Mario Monte's 13.6% support to win control...after a Tuscan bank scandal weakened Bersani's party.
But the Catholic Church has finally abandoned Berlusconi...and now backs devout follower Monte.
