Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you think Mitterand and Delors were starry-eyed idealists, have a bag of salmiak on me ;)

More than anyone seems to want to recognize in this discussion, the rapid fall of Communism redrew the map of Europe and forced them into an attempt to tighten the bolts on the European superstructure. I don't know to what extent they believed it would really work. Maybe I should try to see if Delors has said anything of late. Mitterand, apparently, is silent.
