A good choice, if things shake out that way

French chattering classes are increasingly agitated by the possibility of Bernard Kouchner being named Minister of Foreign Affairs because of his reputation of being the architect of the policy known as le droit d'ingérance (which is really just a way of saying "pre-emptive strike" with alot of fancy "human rights" notions thrown in so the UN will swallow it) and his early support of the war in Iraq. Oh, and he's a longtime Socialist and 1968er and he's getting ready to jump ship.
