Blotunga was already in power.
supplementscene: This sounds a bit too much like stating the obvious Lift. If you're Scum who could you want to be Chancellor that hasn't been in power already? Blotunga perhaps? Hmmmm
And of course I am stating the obvious. That was the point. blotunga tried to play the 'Hey, I was Hitler last time. How likely is it that I'm Hitler again?' card. Which is a fallacy. The likelihoods are independent. So the likelihood of becoming Hitler again in this game is exactly the same as it would be if he hadn't been Hitler in the last game. 1/10.
I'm not exactly sure who I want to be chancellor. The problem is, those who weren't in governments yet look a bit off. Which may be the reason no one nominated them.
But I have some persons I would exclude and would definitely vote against:
Joe - obvious. I know he's scum so his probability of being Hitler is 1/4. Combine that with the fact that he was playing quite Liberal until revealed, makes him a good Hitler-candidate.
rtcvb - his reluctance to participate in a government, before being called out on that. Plus general absence for large stretches of the game. Might be Hitler trying to hide, who got cold feet in his own government and buried an L.
trent - passed me an L, true, but that's what Hitler would do. And he was atypically silent for significant parts of the game. So I think he has an higher than average Hitler chance. Probably not a regular Fascist though, so he would be OK as president.
Not 100% excluded, but rather not as chancellor:
blotunga - the way he put himself forward as chancellor plus the fallacious argument about having a low probability of being Hitler makes him look bad. I'm always a bit suspicious of someone who vouches for himself. But then again he's right. The smart thing for Hitler would be to let the Fascists do the vouching.
ZFR - just too liberal. I'd rather have him as President than as Chancellor.
Probably not Hitler:
flubb - he's just not Liberal enough to be Hitler. But he has a high probability of being regular Fascist, I would say.
Definitely not Hitler:
me - but everyone would say that. :-) Still, I'm the only player where I know that 100%.
