Mélenchon Rolls On

The Mélenchon phenomenon continues: the candidate of the Front de Gauche turned out 70,000 people in Toulouse yesterday. Quite an amazing event.

The only thing interesting in this campaign are the dynamics. If Melenchon reaches 18% and Hollande drops to 26-27, second round will be amusing.

All these centrists voters that everybody expects to vote for Hollande may not be there. And a Hollande president will be stuck between a rock and a hard place.

If I were Bayrou, I would be seething with anger at being in the syringe and not being able to do anything, except, may be, destroy. When you believed that you were walking on water and called to great things, life can be really painful.
