Entre les Verts, le PS, le MoDem ou Villepin, il y a une compétition pour savoir qui incarne politiquement cette alternative. C'est pour ça que je plaide pour qu'on parte des questions de fond.
Interesting to find not only MoDem but even Villepin included in Valls' notion of the rightmost boundary of the Left. This will probably not endear him to the PS, the party he was invited to leave not so long ago by its leader Martine Aubry. Ségolène Royal has similar ambitions--"to build a party stretching from Besancenot to Bayrou," as she put it at Harvard last year--but even she hasn't yet suggested reviving her ENA-era "amourette" with Villepin. That might just be a bridge too far. But Valls has less to lose.
