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.
