Looks Like a Sarkozy-Royal Dual in France

The first numbers are in. The "right wing" UMP (does France have a true and viable small-government, free-market party?) represented by Sarkozy is up to 30%, and the big-government socialists' Royal is around 25%.

The Economist's View of Sarkozy



[Thanks to viewimages.com for this link to Segolene Royal, and thanks to The Economist for Sarkozy.]

Bayrou is down around 18.3%, and Le Pen is floundering at 11.5%.

More as news filters in.

Once again, a nation's politics are very closely related to economics, in the sense that if the politics are not propitious, good economics cannot prosper.

Segolene definitely wins on looks. Even a gay man would prefer her to that reptilian fellow.
