Votez

Today was the presidential election in France. Well, round one anyway. There are twelve candidates total this time, but only two move on to the next round. (However, if a candidate manages to get over 50% of the vote in round one, s/he becomes president and there is no round two.)

Big surprise… Sarkozy (Right) vs. Ségolène (Left) for round two on May 6. I fear Mr. Anti-Immigration will become the next president. This is the same sinking feeling I got in my stomach before the previous two US elections… and we all know how those turned out. :(

    Do you know when these guys finally make the change in Elysees? I’m worried about what will happen to me as an expat here if the new guy is elected. Although he denies, I seriously think he’s a xenophobe. Ironic as he’s from Hungary.
