Representatives of the UMP and PS discuss defense policy here.
A personal note: Arnaud Danjean, the UMP representative in this debate and currently an MEP, is a man to watch, I think. I met him when he visited Harvard recently and found him to be smart, well-informed, and refreshingly candid for a politician. He lost to Arnaud Montebourg by a handful of votes in a recent election for the conseil régional. If Sarkozy loses, there will be a circulation of UMP elites, I expect, and you can look for Danjean to emerge on the national stage.
