Dr. Kouchner and Mr. Hyde

Apparently there are two Bernard Kouchners: the one who swears fealty and allegiance to Nicolas Sarkozy, and the one who gives interviews to Le Nouvel Observateur denouncing "l'inflexion sécuritaire" of Sarkozy's policy and complaining of repeated "humiliations" at the hands of Sarko's underlings. Peu importe. He'll soon be ex-foreign minister and free once again to assume the high moral ground, where his contradictions add relief to his character rather than paralyze his action.
