Dominique Strauss-Kahn could have been President of France. It is probably true to say that, 12 months from now, he would have been President. Yesterday he appeared in a New York courtroom accused of “attempted rape” and “sexual assault“. He dismisses the allegations, but his presidential ambitions – never openly declared – are clearly over. Whatever the truth, it is impossible to imagine that this miserable affair could be settled before the deadline for “DSK” to enter the French Socialist primary in late June.

  1. Well I am hung up on 2 sides of the story. One side says that the maid is money hungry and out to get some big bucks from one of the most powerful men in the world. Well, who use to be the most powerful man in the world. The other side of the story is that Dominique Strauss-Kahn thinks he can do anything given his position and did take advantage of the maid. The thing that tells me that Dominique Strauss-Kahn might have been the guilty one is the fact that he resigned from his position as IMF chief. Perhaps he knows that he is going down and left his seat with IMF.
