Ségolène edges out Sarko in 2007. What would that've been like?

I have a sort of off-topic question. Why is Royal considered to be such a joke and a bad candidate/politician? Is she really that clueless.

From what I gather, she comes off as very self-loving and a shameless populist and she's made some stupid, stupid gaffes in the past. She extremely divisive within the PS as well. Someone French'll definitely be able to elaborate more.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

I would! Personalities in French politics leave me baffled.

I'll read it Hash, I am actually interested to hear more about the gaffes in Royale's 2007 campaign (I know about the Reims Congress and that she ran for the leadership of a religious cult, but I would like to read your effortpost if you feel up to it.

The hell? Really!?

I saw about the Quebec sovereignty comment. Reeked of "hey yeah, sure, I can be General De Gaulle."

Her and Hollande must've made such a contrasting couple though, I've  gotta say.

Hollande sure seems to have a thing for crazy women who are far bolder, tougher, and less level-headed than he is (not that that's saying much)

With insight, I'm pretty sure than a Royal presidency would have been a nightmare for the PS and, by today, we'd have gotten a right-wing landslide ala 1993. Guess I need to thank Sarko for winning in 2007 ? Tongue

Beyond true. Could see a scenario where Royal wouldn't have even reached the second round in 2012. The working classes would've bled to Marine and Melonchon.
