SHE HAS TO HAVE SLEPT HER WAY TO THE TOP:

Quebec 'gaffe' causes Royal grief (BBC, 1/23/07)

French Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal has denied interfering in Canada's affairs, after she voiced apparent sympathy for Quebec's freedom.

Ms Royal told reporters on Monday she supported "sovereignty and liberty" for Quebec, prompting a rebuke from Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

She now says she meant that "the people who vote are sovereign and free".


She makes that other famous French pol, John Kerry, sound like Daniel Webster.

Sheesh. Even the residents of Quebec have given up on "sovereignty and liberty," other than as a campaign and bumper sticker slogan. Talk about out of touch and behind the times.
