French Socialists Scramble after the Arrest of DSK

The French Socialists are in disarray as they try to regroup following the arrest of DSK, as many French people refer to Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The next presidential elections are approaching in France and DSK was the highly anticipated candidate for the Socialists, expected by many to win the primary easily and have a great chance against Nicolas Sarkozy.

Now DSK is awaiting trial in New York City and the Socialists have a diverse field of potential candidates considering primary bids.
