The results of the French presidential election are in and, as expected, Nicolas Sarkozy won with 53% of the vote according to the earliest exit polls. I've been having some internet connectivity problems for the last couple days, so any analysis will have to wait til tomorrow evening when I get back home. Suffice it to say that there was a somber mood all day among sympathizers of the left. At the same time, Royal, along with all the spokespeople of the left (with one notable exception), focused on the parliamentary elections a month from now that will determine whether Sarkozy governs with a majority, and if so, how large. That's it for now.
