I don't remember on which list I read that women of power had to be  
described by their clothes, their outlooks etc in the mainstream  
press. I think there is a lot of crap about Segolène Royal in the  
French press already and this WSJ article is just a sum of quotes  
from the worst French pages. There is little if anything to learn  
from the piece and I fail to see its relevance on this list.

By the way the tax on French citizen aborad was proposed in a report  
by DSK 2 days ago and was already refused yesterday (or this morning,  
depending on your time zone).

SR will announce her program tomorrow and it will either be streamed  
or available from the net right after. Check the FSP page.
