EELV Bankrupt, Financially and/or Politically?
It seems that EELV's finances are in as parlous a state as its presidential candidacy. Even if the party doesn't go bankrupt, everyone is wondering about the significance of Eva Joly's decision to withdraw from a televised debate and take a break from all media activity. Some say she'll be back in action next week, but others say that her candidacy is in tatters after several major gaffes and she is about to withdraw. Then what? Hulot? Duflot? Cohn-Bendit? Or a decision not to run a candidate, which was Cohn-Bendit's preference in the first place. It would make more sense to concentrate on inflecting the policy choices of the PS and working toward seats in the Assembly.
