    Default Is Sarkozy on his way back?

    According to various news outlets on French TV he may well be.

    He obtained an endorsement yesterday from Chirac's wife, and there appear to be growing calls for him to run in 2017.

    What's frightening people is the possibility of a run-off in 2017 between Hollande and Marine le Pen. The left worry that they could lose that race, while the right fear that they could win it. This would consign the UMP to the sidelines as a right-wing force.

    58 Million Frenchies to choose from....and they go looking for that clown to run the country.

    Sarkozy just lost an election to a man Hollande. Hollande was described as a non-achiever (by the woman who spent the most time with him in his life).

    The French centre-right need to find a more credible candidate than platform-shoes-man.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    It's weird. They seem drawn to him as if he were some Clinton-figure.

    His polls are looking very good for him.

    His way or the hi way.
    Racism = fear, low self-esteem and breath-taking ignorance.

    All that is missing now is for Phony Tony and Flash Gordon to tell the Brits that they are returning and the campaign is sponsored by RBOS.

    Actually it is frigthening. It is like as if people are really desperate.

    But we see the same thing here, with FFinished improving the poll numbers (according to the Sindo).

    If he did run again and won he'd be the first French president to serve two non consecutive terms.
