Should DSK run for president of France?

Speculation is swirling around Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s possible run for presidency of France in 2012. Strauss-Kahn is already three years into his term as the managing director of the IMF and has two more to go. But whether he’ll finish his term is the the most looming question right now.

What makes it more plausible that he will run is that he made a bid for the Socialist party’s nomination for the 2007 presidential election. And, recent opinion polls show that DSK would defeat incumbent president, Nicolas Sarkozy, in 2012. Either way, we will know in June of 2011 — candidates must enter the race by then. The Socialist party will select its nominee in the autumn of 2011.
