Conservative Nicolas Sarkozy greeted news of his election Sunday to a five-year term as France's president with a vow to serve as a leader for all people of France.
Sarkozy added that he wanted to tell his "American friends that they can rely on our friendship ... France will always be next to them when they need us."
Merde! Hating France was my whole raison d' etre!
Ah, well. It's been years since I've had a good Bordeaux. Time for a little rapprochement, as they say.
