If Dominique Strauss-Kahn wants to take a shot at the presidency, his party won't stand in his way. Socialist leader Martine Aubry said the party could change its primary schedule to allow Strauss-Kahn to run. "Since we like unreal debates in our country, let's say that Dominique Strauss-Kahn decided to come back as a candidate among us, no one will let a calendar stand in his way," said Aubry. Several other Socialist candidates also said they were open to stretching the party's deadline. All Socialists have to declare their candidacy by July 13, but the next hearing in Strauss-Kahn's case isn't until July 18.
