Your reflections apply to any candidate. Why only apply them to Clinton and Royal?
She also criticized some side effects of the 35-hour working week that Lionel Jospin wrote into law when he was Prime Minister
[me not wikipedia]: Those side-effects were mainly, she said, that women in some jobs had been forced to work hours that were difficult for them in view of family commitments.
(It's not often noted that the 35-hour laws included negotiations between labour and management on flexibilisation of working hours within the week and within the year - to the considerable benefit of businesses).
I'm just a bit tired of hearing this "Royal is charisma, charm, a pretty face, and then nothing behind the mask" that is after all the right's main narrative thrust in this election.
I don't think Clinton was just a pretty face either...
What are you really getting at?
