I've been searching around online to see if I could find video of the French presidential debate from yesterday and haven't had any luck. I managed to see the much publicized clip of Royale getting steamed up about handicapped children being integrated into regular schools. I think I'll keep searching because it was a great exchange. I wish Americans could have as much verbal fabulousness as French people are allowed to have. The commentary on Brit tonight was very good. I imagine the Corner on NRO will have it posted tomorrow. It is true that women, for whatever reason, have greater hurdles to jump in french politics than in America or even in the rest of Western Europe. I don't know why this is, other than that French women have to be gorgeous and thin, whereas in England they're allowed to be frumpy and in Spain they're allowed to be full bodied and glorious. This is a crass generalization, based on no stats or facts whatsoever.
Anyway, based on politics and not gender (I promise) I really hope Sarkozy wins because, beautiful though she is, Segoline Royale will just make a bad situation worse.
