Prodi to support Royal

A day after former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi publicly threw his support behind UMP candidate Nicolas Sarkozy, it was announced that current Italian PM Romano Prodi will support Socialist candidate Segolene Royal, and may even join her for a campaign rally. This moves Royal's foreign endorsements up to 3: Zapatero, Chavez, and Prodi. As far as I know Sarkozy has not been officially endorsed by a current foreign leader, but of course, Washington and London are doing little to disguise their enthusiasm for the UMP candidate.

If I were the Royal camp I wouldn't be very pleased with Chavez's backing. As regards Prodi, well I guess he'll have more support in France than back home.

On the Sarko front, I'm sure an official Bush endorsement would sink him completely.
