Will Sarkozy Make A Difference?

—Albert Mohler

The election of Nicolas Sarkozy as President of France sets the stage for possible big changes on the world scene. Sarkozy's comfortable victory over his Socialist opponent gives him a rare opportunity to lead France in new directions.

Sarkozy's victory was a clear call for change. France faces incredible domestic challenges ranging from immigration and falling birth rates to the economy. Sarkozy, himself the son of immigrants from Hungary, ran on a platform calling for immigrants to learn the French language and learn to love France.

The French economy is stalled by rules and regulations that require employment for life ? which means that French employers simply cannot afford to hire new workers.

The plainspoken Sarkozy is also a friend of the Unites States, and he pledged that his victory means a new and more cooperative relationship between the two countries.

"For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to make a difference," Sarkozy has said. Now he has his chance. -- By Albert Mohler, Townhall.com
