Hollande’s “Battle Plan” for 2017

On his blog French Politics, Art Goldhammer discusses François Hollande’s “battle plan” for 2017.   After reading both the Le Monde article and Goldhammer’s excellent analysis this thought struck me:

Either François Hollande is the least self-aware man on the planet or Karl Menninger was right that murder and suicide are interchangeable.  It doesn’t surprise me that Hollande turned out to be a political “family annihilator”.  What surprises me is that it’s that the Parti Socialiste had two recent opportunities to avoid its fate and choose to stick with François Hollande.
