Traffic Cop

Just as an addendum to yesterday's long post: everywhere he goes Bersani is asked about how it would be to govern with both Vendola and Monti on the team, and today, with his penchant for metaphor unabated, he had a clear answer: "The [Democratic Party] primaries determined who directs the traffic, and if the problem arises, I'll take care of it."

Meanwhile Bersani's nuanced endorsement of Vendola--"He knows what it is to govern and what sorts of compromises are necessary"--was exceeded by Vendola's own mash note to the Secretary: "a competent and passionate administrator ... and a stand-up guy [persona perbene]."

We'll see soon enough who gets the right-of-way ...
