Gouverner, C'est communiquer

"Gouverner, c'est choisircommuniquer." Yes, the rules of the game have changed since the glory days of PMF. You can find the ranking of French politicians as communicators here, in a report of a recent survey of journalists who cover them day in and day out. There are a few anomalies: Ségolène Royal makes both the top 5 and the bottom 5 (some like her, some detest her). Jean-François Copé gives a drubbing to Xavier Bertrand among contenders on the right, but I myself can't listen to either man for more than two minutes, and Copé makes my skin crawl with his unctuous insincerity and barely contained contempt.
