Dominique Strauss-Kahn: What’s in a reputation? – World Politics, World – The Independent
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.
