Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I must say I'm puzzled: what reasoning makes you say that Cohn-Bendit agrees with Sarkozy? Same for Franks.

Franks is quite clear in saying that the US Democrats have allowed themselves to be painted as the liberal elite - he is deploring what Sarkozy is boasting about. Cohn-Bendit is, to my mind, also arguing against an inward looking left that is driven by internal power struggles - also a way of saying "not in contact with the daily lives" of ordinary people.
