EU Superpower

The Turkish press is rather enamoured with European press coverage of Turkey’s potential contribution:
Italy’s prominent newspaper Corriere della Sera’s leading article focusing on the issue, said that Turkey’s full membership will make the Union a super power politically, economically and morally.
I understand that the addition of Turkey does a lot for the critical mass of the EU. But politically Turkey is a country that punches well below its weight, economically it has massive potential but is still poor and as for morally, this would be the same Turkey that has been criticised so heavily over human rights abuses would it not? I can’t believe they are trying to use this line to get Turkey on board.
