Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So far I would sum it up as follows:

DSK wants to imitate Sarkozy (tries to look ultra-confident, economically modern etc)

Fabius is a bit confused, probably because he doesn't really know how much he should try to seduce the extreme-left.

Royal is probably the most passionate, but talks longer than others (gets scolded by the hosts). It's hard to tell whether she's talking from the heart or a very good comedian reciting her notes. If it's the first, she'll have convinced a lot of people tonight (after 30 minutes of debate). If not, she'll be like DSK.

My appreication may be short-lived, as time passes the candidates are becoming less hazy and feel more at ease:

Fabius is starting to pull off a harder left rhetoric, but still speaks slowly.

DSK is becoming more passionate, speaks faster, but still has a liberal-tinted tone.

Royal speaks at the same rate, neither fast nor slow, seems tranquil.

Royal wants to make delocalisations illegal for companies that yield profits.

Explaining that any company that yields profits can innovate and, if ushered the right way, can create truly social added value. So it doesn't need to delocalise!
