    It means that the socialists are being crushed in every elections.... and almost nobody trust on them,so you'll never see again a socialist president in France ! The presidential elections will be on ~April or May 2017

    I have many friends in France. No one is Sarkozy's fan. As for the right, that includes Marine Le Pen. Not sure you would celebrate that. But Charlie Hebdo did work in her favor.

    Having said that, anti-incumbency does play a factor and Hollande is mostly seen as useless.

    I watched yesterday French movie agent 117 in Rio. He was fond of old De Gaulle government. Maybe we see something similar in the future.
