PS just destroyed her slight chance to defeat Sarkozy... I really wish Sarko wouldn't be president, but I doubt more and more that Segolene can beat him... Which is sad coz she probably wouldn't be the greatest president of all time, she'd still do elss damages than Sarkozy...

If Sego allows the left wing of her party to dominate politics then it will be for the worse. But if she allows social democrats like DSK into the limelight then things could get better. Anyway I hope that Bibi is right and that Sarko wins the elections. I am using Bibi as my luckycharm. Allez Sarko!

And what annoys me is that her whole campaign has been made around the fact that she's a woman and that would be a great change for France, would show we're modern (in the way of thinking, which I don't think we are :tape: )... Wrong reasons to vote for someone.

So what you're saying is that it will be a sort of a preview of the Hilary Clinton campaign. And it will still be the wrong reasons to vote for someone here as well.

If Sarkozy is elected, I will seriously think about leaving France.

Actually the main reason to vote for Sego (overlooked by the "stoopid poll") is that she appears to have a very strong environmental policy. But will French voters see the importance of that at this moment in the Earth's history?

Govt. spending in France and Sweden is over 50%, while in the
USA it is about 35% (fed, state, county, city). Unemployment
in France is at what now? 9-10%? It's 4.4% in the USA.

So, let's see.

If she wins ,and don't polls (for what they are worth at all)show
she may indeed make it a real race....I'd say we'll see the huge
32.0 hour week go to 24...........

Wow....3 days of work!

That ought to push up the economy.


*Shorter work week.
*Longer vacations
*More people getting govt. assistance
*More Muslims immigrating to France to make
it more like Saudi Arabia than Paris.
*Closer than ever ties to Iran, Syria, North Korea,
and China, and the Palestinians....for big bucks.
*More snippy meetings with whoever the British
Prime Minister is. (my favorite thing by the way).

I will miss Chirac and Blair snipping at one another
in public.

From what I read of her, in this new election format, it
seems she's very qualified, if far left (in comparision to
America, the real Left is in Europe, we're more middle
of the road on most things).

Get your facts straight. It is a 35.0 hour week of work, and she wouldn't reduce it.

My vote goes to the rather elegant Seglene. Rather confusingly the UK Labour gov. of Blair and Brown are backing Sarkozy. The recent US mid-term elections, important that they were, got massive media coverage here. Our friends and neighbours (France) right next door having a vital presidential election gets next to no coverage in the UK. Go figure ....

Perhaps because Sarkozy is super pro-US? :tape:

I am sad DSK didn't win, he was my fave of the PS candidates. Segolene's problem is that her diction is HORRIBLE. I've watched quite some docus on how she "rules" her region and I must say I wound't want to be at the place of a subordinate to her if I didn't do my job properly. She knows how to make you work- that's sure. But her diction makes her look like.. well, like if she was someone that doesn't really know what she wants and how to get to it.

Why are you laughing? She does have somewhat conservative ideas. Usually the cons in the socialist party (like Mitterand who was like Nixon) are electable and the liberals in the conservative party like Chirac are electable. Sarko was originally to the right of his party now he is trying to to be at the center of his party. He is still an exception to the rule and I hope he wins. :)
