The Macron “miracle”

I had my doubts about Macron's ability to lead France, and today, after the sweeping success of his new party during the French legislative elections, I must admit I was flat wrong.

Indeed, after he “miraculously” got elected president back in May, I thought he would never be able to govern with a majority of his own party in the French Assembly; against my wise estimation, he pulled it off!
This goes to say that in politics, dramatic change is always possible and that it's never been more true these days than ever before. I'd just wish the positive French tide would turn in some similar way in the United States...
