Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well so far I just have heard wind coming out of her lips. She says ANYTHING that fits the audience she is about to meet. Her words lack substance. It's empty (but for some appealing) rethorics. Of course she is not completely stupid.

regarding your translation of "rupture tranquille" I'd prefer something like "the worrisome quiet break off". Sarkozy has been campaigning for years for a "break off" from the current system (leftwing gaullism). When they understood that the break off could be a bit too much for the majority of the French in the sense that they are not ready for neoliberalism, they added "quiet" to the word.
