French Socialists in Crisis: Archrivals Royal and Aubry Attempt Show of Unity - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

Support for France's Socialist Party has plummeted lately, partly due to the fierce rivalry between party boss Martine Aubry and ex-presidential candidate Segolene Royal. The two tried to bury the hatchet for a European election rally on Wednesday. But for how long?
