Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That is the other narrative that the right is doing its best to sell:

she is weak, inconstant, and inexperienced in the ways of the gritty tough real world, because she is a woman.

I think she's perfectly aware of this and will know how to counter it.

Tha narrative we don't hear (because Sarkozy controls most of the media) is that tough-guy Sarko himself can make mistakes. He made a big one by situating himself too far out to the right in hopes of stealing Le Pen's electorate. It's now hard for him to come back in to the fuzzier, warmer zones of the centre.
