Arnaud Montebourg is an ambitious man. A serious presidential run is still a way off, but he's young. He's also willing to stick his neck out: witness his report on corruption in the Socialist federation of Bouches-du-Rhône under Baron Jean-Noël Guérini. Yet the party leadership continues to defend its baron. Montebourg may suffer in the short run, but in the long run perhaps he'll get some credit for daring.

My experience in the PS in PACA tells me they're probably defending Guérini in BdR, because otherwise their candidate for Maire of Marseille would need to be Patrick Mennucci. Ségolene's 'enforcer'.

Hadleigh Roberts, that's interesting. What do you mean?
