Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Kouchner has joined Rocard and on the "independent" socialist blogs (Liberation, DSK) more than half of the voices wonder when DSK makes the same move.

As I have pointed out previously here (and been half-flamed for) Sego doesn't stand a chance in a final round against Sarko. Even if the far left supports her she can maximally gather 40% of the vote. The 20% supporting Bayrou won't vote for her, they will go fishing.

If the social-democrats have a minimum of guts they should appeal for a Bayrou vote before the 22nd. That would ensure DSK and Kouchner into key posts in a Bayrou government and save the responsible left.

If they don't the split will happen anyway after the election of Sarko. Which means 5 lost years.
