Varian is emphatically NOT the head of the Alliance. Just because you don't see action, doesn't mean it isn't happening. The Alliance is the same as the Alliance of Lorderon, which had numerous leadership problems during and after the Second War.It's a confederation, a loose "alliance" of powers that have similar interest. There is no singular leader, though Jania Proudmoore was supposed to be something of a head of state for the Alliance IIRC.In any case, you have the interests of Stromgarde, Ironforge, Aeire Peak, Kul Tiras, Darnassus, the Exodar, Theramore, the remants of Lorderon, the exiled High Elves, and possibly Dalaran still (who profess neutrality for the time being, but under the pretext of war against the Blues and because only Varian is insane enough to break the peace), all of whom have an equal voice at the table.Thrall, however, is unquestioned as the leader of the Horde. He is the prima inter pares, leaving the member nations to their own affairs, but undisputed under his control as a single faction.

Thrall is the cot dang pater familias. And he's bona fide!

Jaina has too many allegiances to too many peoples to be anything close to an Alliance head of state. The Kirin Tor (now neutral - WTH?), her father's forces, Lordaeron, and Thrall all influence her in one way or another. No way can she speak on behalf of the Alliance.

I say we clear out Gnomeregan so Mekkatorque can finally step up to the plate.
