    Now again Mitterand is a very mixed-up memory for the french left. For me who grew up in a neighbourhood where the Party ruled (i.e: Communist Party, there was never no other one here), his election was a sign of hope. It was only a few months before everyone realised he was a man for the financial powers. I remember that very well, and I was only seven years old at that time.
    I was wondering if the propped up corpse would still best the current crop of candidates....

    If we must go for a corpse let's take Leon Blum. His ghost would win.
