DSK Portrayed by His "Friends"

Raphaëlle Bacqué and Ariane Chemin provide a very interesting portrait of DSK painted by his "friends." I find it difficult to imagine this man as president of France even if all suspicion of rape is somehow removed from his person. Reckless, libertine, feckless, lazy, self-indulgent ... if this is what his friends say about him, all his supposed "brilliance" would not be enough to redeem him. Surely there has to be more to the man than emerges from this portrait.

And for icing on the cake, read this comment by Arun Kapil, as well as the article he cites by Colombani.
