Moscovici Unbends

It seems as though Pierre Moscovici did more than react to the provocation launched the other day by Claude Bartolone. He actually shed his starchy corset long enough to make a deal with Arnaud Montebourg (see his blog, section 2, and Le Parisien): "Intellectual and political evolutions may be observed, the possibility is ripening." I do admire Moscovici's intellect and discretion, but a little of the proverbial fire in the belly might be appropriate from time to time. L'éventualité mûrit indeed. Before you know it, your comrades are going to be voting, and you'll need more than "des passerelles" to other factions to win this thing. You're a politician, man, not un directeur de conscience.
