Bayrou. Hollande is bland, and Sarkozy is too much of an opportunist.

So you choose the bland opportunist. Makes sense.

Is there any centrist french politician who doesn't fit that description?

I'm only familiar with the top-tier candidates (Sarkozy, Hollande, Le Pen, Bayrou). Out of these four, Bayrou holds the most appeal to me.

I would vote for Hollande but not very enthusiastically. But he needs momentum from the first round and the political Left needs to unite if it wants Sarkozy out of Office.

Maybe more gentle. Sometimes. Definitely not more loyal. Neither more clever. But take a surfing on Die Linke female ranks... I've never noticed any right, center or center left outfit with that appeal, on average. Add some Danish, Brazilian and Chilean, you'll know why I always loved going to UNE's congresses. Just piss them off with some bourgeois talking and they get really wild.
