    PARIS, Aug 1, 2006 (AFP) - Segolene Royal, the Socialist tipped to become France's first female president, on Tuesday called for former US president Bill Clinton to intervene to calm the escalating Middle East conflict.
    "France can play an intermediary, trustworthy role" but we also need "voices that carry international weight, that have moral authority",:laugh: Royal told RTL radio.
    "I am thinking about people such as Bill Clinton. We can find others, one per continent, who will be able to relaunch dialogue and give the feeling that we can talk to each other again," she said.
    "We need person-to-person talks so that this little 48-hour glimmer of truce can be transformed into a ceasefire," Royal added.

    What 48 hour cease fire? It didn't happen. Hizbollah knew the parameters, disregarded them and Israel resumed the air.
