Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I get the sense that if (BIG if) Bayrou manages to position himself as the truly centrist candidate and makes it to the second round, he'd be tough to beat. He'd pick up the support of the fallen candidate (Sarko or Ségo) in addition to potentially being able to draw more centrist supporters from the other candidate.

Of course, I was sure Kerry would beat Bush in 2004, so what the hell do I know.
