Nicolas Sarkozy is said to be "bored" after spending a three-week post-election break with his wife and children in Morocco in which he was constantly on the phone to politicians back in France, according to reports.
Mr Sarkozy, his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, and their daughter Giulia, returned to Paris on Saturday, where he was spotted jogging in the Bois de Boulogne, after unwinding at King Mohammed VI's expense in one of his luxury private residences in Marrakesh.
The Right-winger intends to remain "durably discreet" after losing to Socialist François Hollande in his presidential re-election bid on May 6, one of his closest friends, Brice Hortefeux, insisted.
"He is naturally concerned by the situation in Europe, but remains removed, voluntarily and durably from all political preoccupation," he told France 3.
After spending the rest of the month in Paris, Mr Sarkozy will descend with his wife to her Riviera retreat in Cap Nègre for the following two months.
Playing hard to get would soon see the French missing Mr Sarkzoy, the country's most unpopular President at the end of a first term, one friend predicted. "In a year, he'll be as popular as (Jacques) Chirac ," he is quoted as saying by Le Journal du Dimanche.

Mr Sarkozy intimated he would quit politics after his defeat, but it seems he cannot stay away, and is doing a lot behind the scenes to prevent the Right from being wiped out in the upcoming legislative elections on June 1o and 17.
Pretty soon, with the EU in crisis and the euro imploding, and Hollande waffling about in confusion, I expect to see the GWB -like “MISS ME YET?” signs all over France.
Go visit Mubarek in his jail cell.

Are all western leaders beholden to the muzzies? Just wondering.

His wife might be pretty, but that does not necessarily translate into interesting.
I guess he is beginning to understand what Americans that haven’t worked for 3 years are going through.
Many do not know much about her other than images of her looks.
She is an exceptional performer.
Very nice but that’s only interesting for maybe 0.5-3 years. Depending on her “skills and effort”.
If there’s nothing else there, you’ll be sick of the most beautiful woman in the world rather quickly.
I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
Tired maybe but never bored.
He should go on a road trip with Silvio Berlusconi. Party animals.
Can you say Cap Negre without getting Jesse Jackson’s and Al Sharpton’s panties all in a twist? :)
