Personally I thought the FRench election was rather like the NSW one....two poor choices available and you had to choose the "lesser of two evils".
Segolene Royal was likeable at least as a public figure but her policies would have taken France deeper into the economic abyss that they are.
On the other hand, Sarkozy talks the talk but can he walk the walk given that he has been part of the government that has stuffed France's economy for the better part of a decade.
Will also be interesting to see what turn Franco-US relations take now ?
Sarkozy is a conservative and I imagine some of his ideas will draw warm applause from Dick "Deadeye" Cheney, Condy and Dubya.
Thoughts people ?
