Yesterday I've heard that Kouchner might have a ministry in the future French government.

I like the guy even though he's a leftist, he has the image of a guy that doesn't play the politician's game. When an idea is good he tells it straight, no matter if it comes from his political friends or not.

This has lead him to support the USA in the Iraq war, for instance, because he thinks we have a duty to interfere against dictatorships.

Today the news are split about it.

Libération focuses on the criticism from the PS, where many see it as a betrayal of socialist values, while Le figaro writes about the problems with Sarkozy's followers, who complain that Sarkozy's openness is leaving them behind.

To sum things up, nobody's happy.
