France elected Nicolas Sarkozy, son of a Hungarian immigrant (and, perhaps, a mill worker?), with 53% of the vote. He defeated Segolene Royal, the first woman to make it to the second round of a French presidential election. 85.5% of the French electorate turned out to vote for the pro-American Mr. Sarkozy (over the very attractive Ms. Royal).
This is the first time that the French president is not an America-hating wuss.
Of course, Ms. Royal looks better in a bikini, so there is that.
