The Macron compromise

On May 7, my countrymen will have to pick their next president and, hopefully, they'll chose Macron over Le Pen.

The ultra-right candidate is smart, articulate and knows how to connect with people. She makes some good points about the Islamic tsunami raging over France, but her economic plans are a disaster. If elected, she'd be to France what Trump is to us.

Macron, on the other hand is the perfect technocrat, a former socialist economy minister re-invented into a centrist, pro-business leader and most probably, likely to end up with a minority supporting him at the Assembly when it's renewed next June.

Even with Macron at the helm, don't expect my home country to pull many miracles out over the next five years!
