Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, whether Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a "TINA guy" or not can be discussed. However, if the left wins the 2012 elections, he will have to govern with a parliament majority composed of representatives from the Parti Socialiste (including its left-wing), probably a significant number of Europe Ecologie MPs and a few from Front de Gauche. That means only a minority of the French broad left-wing MPs would be "TINA persons". Furthermore, if elected, he will most probably name Aubry Prime minister.

Oh, and the Senate will probably have a left-wing majority by then, too.

So, there is hope. But 2012 is not tomorrow, and many things may happen...
