Sarkozy was going to reject the politics of the left? That France had moved to the right. So the right got slaughtered in the regional elections...sacre bleu! Never mind, for all Sarkozy's woes he has a gorgeous missus.As for France they rose three places in the 2009 'List of countries by Human Development Index' to 8th whilst the USA fell one place to 13th. So France, with all its strife ['public private difference'-shock horror!] is still in a relatively envious position compared to the US which has no such 'public private difference'. Cheer up.
