Pauvre Sarko, pauvre France!
A reverse in the polls is always possible. Sarko may be suffering from the Richard Nixon effect: no one would admit they voted for him, but he won by a lot.
The debate may also have a game changing effect, but that is grasping at straws.
If France goes down the Socialist road with Hollande, it is doomed. Uncontrolled immigration, higher taxes, redistribution of wealth.
I’m still cautiously optimistic that Sarko can pull this out.
He is the one with a lifetime of experience in high level office, from Mayor to Minister of Finance, Interior, Budget, Defense, and of course, President.
Hollande’s résumé: Chairman of the Socialist Party for ten years. A man who is an atheist, who never married, who had four children with Segolène Royal, dumped her for his newest girlfriend. If he wins, God forbid, he will live in the Elysèe Palace, and represent France, and travel around the world with a woman who is not his wife.
Very depressing!

If France’s electorate makes this switch, to higher taxes and more govt spending amidst a recession, they are put on the road to Athens.

Nicolas Sarkozy was close to Bush, and who is also being blamed for everything wrong in France, as Bush was in the US. Hollande is the Obama of France, who wants “change.” They’ll get it, but it won’t make a difference. The EU and France is going to have a terrible next few years, and like Obama, Hollande will only be there for the ride.

She ought to be of age now. Le President could have a whole new game when he's out of office.
