Warring French right looks to Sarkozy as a savior

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy (2nd L) enters his car as he leaves his house in Paris November 26, 2012. A co-founder of France's opposition conservative party begged Sarkozy on Monday to step in and save it from implosion, after he failed to settle a vicious row over who won last weekend's leadership contest. Sarkozy - widely seen as mulling a comeback for the 2017 presidential election despite vowing to quit politics when he lost power in May - was to meet Francois Fillon, his former prime minister, for lunch on Monday to discuss the crisis.
