Francois Hollande has defeated Nicolas Sarkozy for the office of President of France. Sarkozy’s inability to repair France’s damaged economy has resulted in the election of the first socialist president since Francois Mitterrand left office in 1995. Apparently the French memory lasts about 17 years. It is interesting that they have elected a candidate whose name is that of another country – kind of like if Americans elected a presidnet named Canada.
