Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that she welcomes the new French president, Francoise Hollande, and is looking forward to working with him. In an interview with USA Today, Clinton said even though Hollande, who is a socialist, will have very different policies from conservative predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy, she believes the strong relationship between France and the United States will continue.
"Different voices may be louder on growth than they have been, but the overall approach of how we support Europe's recovery hasn't changed," Clinton told USA TODAY. "It's been our view that there needed to be some adjustments to just austerity, so that there could be growth, both for economic reasons and for political reasons."
As the two largest and most stable economies in the Eurozone, France and Germany have been the stalwarts during the ongoing economic crisis. Both have helped bail out other Eurozone countries in trouble, but also set strict austerity requirements for countries to remain part of the Euro. Some, such as Greece, have balked at the forced cuts, causing domestic political turmoil and sending global markets into a tailspin.

Hillary Clinton was "Goldwater girl" when she was young; she is an extreme socialist supporting liberal now that she is very old. No heart, no brain.
For the record, call me heartless, I have always been conservative. At least I have a brain.
Hitlery Clinton is a fake, ugly inside and out, old lush.
...all the way home.
Hillary speaks in overlapping trademarked bumper stickers.
Hillary and François can meet and talk Commie to Commie and laugh at having put one over on the American and French people.
I don’t care for the commie but I’m not sad to see the antisemite Sarkozy go either. I could really care less who runs France; they’ve been depressed ever since they lost Hitler.
Hillary is getting very fat. I bet she couldn’t fit into that witch outfit anymore that she wore at Bills first inauguration.
Politically speaking, Hillary is about as relevant as my dog. My dog is better looking though.
The Hollande gov’t won’t last long. Thanks advance_copy.
Shades of Deliverance... I believe it is spelled “Wee” over on this side of the pond and in her neck of the woods. Come to think of it, she does resemble the Geico pig. We can’t all be beauties.
“We cant all be beauties.”
I’m pretty sure we can all avoid being radical, leftist Alinskyites, though, if we try hard enough.
We can only hope that in the upcoming legislative elections, (June 10 and 17), people will see the bad direction Hollande would take France, and change course before it is too late.
