Swiss support for Royal

Socialist candidate Segolene Royal has gained new foreign support for her presidential run after newly elected President of the Swiss Confederation Micheline Calmy-Rey said that she was "very happy" that a female is running in France. Going even further, Calmy-Rey said that "one addresses to her the same criticisms as with me." I have no idea how this will run down in her native country, but as an uninformed observer, Calmy-Rey's statement seems somewhat of a weak attempt to portray herself as her own country's Segolene Royal, something that at least from appearances, she is clearly not.
