Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I must be missing something in Sarko.  To me he is "that horrid little man" always popping up unwanted being terribly chummy with Merkel and others who really wonder what he's on.  He has about the charm of a smart teenager always claiming to be smarter than everybody else.

We are so used to people like Blair looking like intellectual giants compared to Bush.  Any of Obama, Clinton, Edwards and maybe even McCain would make Sarkozy seem like a very marginal figure in the grand scheme of things. Even Putin has more substance though I'm not sure I like the substance.

The American's sometimes complain that when the want to negotiate with "yurp" they don't know who to ring.  I hope it's not Sarkozy because he'd give away the Common Agricultural Policy just for an invitation for a State visit to Washington and a white tie dinner in the white house.  Thats why Cecilia had to go and a replacement had to be lined up.

here between Sarko-Bush-Obama et al is an ideological and concrete regression to the mean ;)
