Outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair is being proposed as the European Union's first full-time president by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, a British newspaper reported Saturday. The Financial Times said Sarkozy had discussed the idea with other European leaders before next week's EU summit in Brussels. It will be Blair's last summit as British leader; he steps down June 27. The prime minister's office said Blair was not seeking the EU job. "The prime minister has made it clear that he is not going to return to front-line politics," a spokeswoman said on the government's customary condition of anonymity. The EU is considering establishing a permanent presidency to replace the current system, in which the post rotates among the 27 member states.
