Munchau on Sarkozy's attempted "Coup d'Etat"

Thanks to Leo for the pointer to Wolfgang Munchau's piece on Sarkozy's proposal that he head the Eurogroup after France's EU presidency ends and why he might succeed despite Angela Merkel's opposition. In conjunction with this, read my previous posts on mounting tensions between France and Germany and France and the Czech Republic. It seems clear that, if the crisis does not fracture the EU beyond repair, it is going to lead to permanent institutional changes even in the absence of a new constitution.
