Lagarde to IMF

Christine Lagarde, as expected, has been chosen to head the IMF, so now the cabinet reshuffle can begin in France. I've heard that Bruno Lemaire is the favorite to succeed her, which would then leave an opening at Agriculture. Would Baroin (also rumored to be in line for Finance) stay on under Lemaire? On verra.

Lagarde as IMF Chief, c'est ouvrir la porte à Aubry as President....

Bad, bad decision for an institution with already dubious legitimacy in the eyes of many.

Rougemer, based on yesterday's speech, I doubt Aubry will be president.

Lagarde was embroiled in some lawsuit, though, right? Isn't the IMF wary?
