Montebourg Backs Hollande
Martine Aubry must have a unique gift for pissing people off. Arnaud Montebourg, who had positioned himself well to the party's left in the primary debates, has now announced that he will vote for Hollande, who had placed himself at the opposite end of the spectrum. And Royal, Hollande's ex-companion, also preferred him to her ex-rival for the party leadership. And that, as they say, should be the ball game, unless of course the rank-and-file decide that their leaders are bafflingly inconsistent and upset the applecart.
