Who is the most evil, ruthless, effective Galactic dictator, Palpatine or Servalan? Both scheme their way to power (though neither is as subtle as a Francis Urquhart!), both over-reach themselves and ultimately fail but in the meantime, destroy whole civilisations, (Alderaan and Auron), purge their senates/high councils, ruthlessly manipulate those around them and have powerful henchmen (Darth Vader and Travis .)

Both also seek to rule by fear and miitary power, rebuilding their Empires after devastating wars (Clone Wars and the Galactic War against the Andromedans). One has Sith force pwoers, the other must rely on sheer cunning and the ability to manipulate people via fear, intimidation and sexuality. Both are decadents (Palpatine's chambers and Servalan's presidential mansion) and both are totally obsessed with power and fear letting go.

Who wins?

Shock poll result at this stage: I didn't expect Palpatine to be winning on this forum!

I'm writing in George W Bush.

I believe at one stage that one of Bush's Republicans actually stated he felt sympathy for the Galactic Empire and that they were in the right in the Star Wars films.

I voted for Servalan, mainly on the basis that she killed dayna's father, who was blind and unarmed.
