The Man France Needs

By David Aikman

"Ever since the presidency of General de Gaulle, who pulled France out of NATO's command structure, French governments have from time to time given Washington serious heartburn. In 2003, for example, France actively opposed the United States' decision to overthrow Saddam Hussein.

But the election in May of former interior minister Nicholas Sarkozy as French president is the best news from France in a long time. Sarkozy is unabashedly pro-American, pro-Israeli and favors free-market economic forces and the old-fashioned values of hard work.

Not surprisingly, he's managed to antagonize French intellectuals, who like their presidents to write poetry, have mistresses and hate America.

Sounds like Sarkozy has arrived in the Elysee Palace just in time."
