Today is the first voting day for the presidential election. (Second and last part on May 6th.) 2002 was pretty traumatizing here because Le Pen (extreme right) went straight into the second part of the vote. BTW my ex, Jean-Hugues Oppel, wrote a wonderful novel on the subject called French Tabloids (hommage to Ellroy of course.) Some elements of the main female protagonist were inspired by me ;-)) http://www.amazon.fr/French-Tabloïds-Jean-Hugues-Oppel/dp/2743613580/ref=sr_1_1/403-2080477-4528416?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1177241252&sr=8-1 JHO just published a sort of Follamour called "Réveillez le président". http://www.amazon.fr/Réveillez-Président-Jean-Hugues-Oppel/dp/274361630X/ref=sr_1_1/403-2080477-4528416?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1177241313&sr=1-1

Sounds like we have the same point of view :-)))

I was just reading about the choice, and I would agree - the comments your Neoconservative made about the riots and about immigrants are troubling. I know how I'd vote!

As for Bush (can we be political here? I'll try not to get too noisy) freedom of the press is one clause of one amendment to our constitution. He doesn't like ANY of it. Except that line in Article 2 about executive powers, of which he is a huge fan.

Bonne chance!

Not centrist right at all. Neoconservative, pretty close to Bush (brown-nosing Bush BTW). I would not suspect Bush of being a centrist. + He threatens the press !

It looks like you are down to Centrist Right and Socialist left. "How are you going to keep them down on the farm, after they've seen ....their tax bill?" Best wishes. Our election battle is just beginning and the first vote is years away. Sigh!

Well, I'm happy to see LePen didn't get in this time!
