Cohn-Bendit to Bayrou: Get Off the Pot

Daniel Cohn-Bendit has urged François Bayrou to follow the lead of several members of his party and endorse Hollande, for to do otherwise is to favor the re-election of Sarkozy. Meanwhile, Frédéric Martel reminds us of Bayrou's detestation of Sarkozy, which makes his hesitation all the more puzzling.

Bayrou published a scathing statement today directed toward Sarkozy but he still won't say anything until he's heard the debate on May 2.
I'm not sure how that will help him decide, since Sarkozy will say whatever anyone wants to hear -today on TF1 he said he'd never used the word "vrai travail" and nobody there had the nerve to broadcast his speech from Sunday. I guess it was his answer to the snickers about what "real work" means (v. fake work? Plus the obvious headshot: "I don't know what he means by real work, but I sure see what he did, real unemployment.")
Anyway, actions speak louder than words, so I'm not sure what Bayrou expects from the Big Debate.
