All over for Alliot-Marie?

Rumours abound today that Foreign Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie is about to leave her post. The timing of this could hardly be any worse with Sarkozy struggling rebuild the popularity of him and his party in the run to 2012 and the crisis in the Middle East, a crisis in which Sarkozy no doubt has intentions of attempting some kind of global leadership in response.

Will she be pushed or step aside of her own will either way this is a substantial blow for the UMP and Sarkozy.
