François “Formica” Hollande

Last night, we watched a TV segment made around the man that will challenge French President Nicholas Sarkozy sometime next spring. The depiction left us thinking that the man that was just picked by the Socialist electorate during the October primary, was a consumed politician with few ideas and just the goal of being elected. A true “vanilla” or better yet “Formica” personality that see another François – Mitterand this time – as he guiding example.

The pure product of the ENA, that French school that churns out professional public servants. With that, it seems to us, that if doesn't screw up too badly and can leverage his terrific sense of populism and his “textured” language, Sarko, as we like to call him, might get another five years at the Élysée Palace...
