French elections

Some months back some people in the media were getting excited about the prospects of a world led by women..
Angela Merkel in Germany, Ségolène Royal in France, and Hillary Clinton in the US - just needed a woman in the UK in the election for Blair's successor but there isn't one in the running)....

but now it won't be happening. Oh well.. atleast she got saved from backrubs from shrubya :)
Conservative Nicolas Sarkozy won the French presidency by a comfortable margin Sunday and immediately signalled his victory would mean friendly relations with the United States. His socialist opponent, Segolene Royal, conceded defeat for her hopes of becoming France's first woman president. With nearly 70 percent of ballots counted, Sarkozy had just over 53 percent of the vote, according to the Interior Ministry.
