The TSCG has been approved by a vote of 477 to 70, with 282 deputies of the Left voting in favor. In other words, the treaty would not have passed without the support of the Right. Not a brilliant victory for Hollande, but a victory, since he has now committed himself to getting along with Germany. For better or worse, he now owns what used to be called "Merkozy."
