Kouchner

Who would have thunk it? Sarko's FM is a gauche caviar who is pro-Turkey's accession to the EU! I suspect Sarkozy will be full of such surprises. Elaine Sciolino has more here. I've admired Kouchner's work w/ MSF, and it will not be uninteresting to see what French foreign policy will look like, particularly re: issues like Iran, with a Foreign Minister whose paternal grandparents were massacred at Auschwitz. All told, I find it a good appointment, though dissenters in comments welcome.
