French elections

France and its citizens are sometime very difficult to please and this is evidenced in this year's election. Just like Obama, Sarkozy inherited a bad economic situation and it's so easy for his opponents to shoot him down, based on his behavior, his liberal use of vulgar language and his below-average height.

There's no political candidate that ever is an ideal match for what we think we want, but my feeling is that besides the few mistakes he might have made, he was the best person for the job and a large portion of his electorate shows little understanding of economics and even less patience.
If I were voting in France, and even though I don't approve of everything he's done over these past five years, I'd still prefer him over the rest of the field and believe that he'll end up winning the contest in two weeks from now... We'll see!
