Ya never know maybe a name change is exactly what the "Front for Change" needs, or will they change their name again and again because they are the "Front for Change".

After being at sea for several months a sea captain called his crew together and said "Good news men today we are in for a CHANGE" "You change with him, you change with him and so on"

Sometimes the more you change the more things stay the same!

I do not think a name change will help him. He has no real policy that is different from Yushchenko so where is the change. The face only? he will not be elected. He may attract some Jewish votes but that is about all. Does not offer much otherwise. This will be a race between Tymoshenko and Yanukovych only. The rest are wasting their time and money
