Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thinking it through : Legislative elections follow the elecion of Le Pen, and give some sort of three-way split between left, right, and FN. A non-FN cohabitation government would have to be "UMPS" (a favourite catch-phrase of the FN : UMP, PS, all the same).

Quite different to the cohabitations under Mitterand or Chirac, much more conflictual. Le Pen could dissolve the Assembly after a year (the constitutional minimum). The danger is that, after a year of powerless posturing and foreign-policy adventures, the voters give her a parliamentary majority the second time.
