Short and sweet, last night on TF1, Segolene Royal appeared on the 100 Questions
Program. She took questions from a cross section studio audience for over 2 hours live and was totally triumphant. Not only proving herself to be the candidate that can address the problems of French Society and International issues, but literally seducing the entire audience. It was the biggest audience for a political program in France ever.
Almost 9 million viewers, over a million more than Nikola Sarkozi had 2 weeks ago.
Over night her poll numbers jumped 10 per cent and Le Monde referred to a moment of the program as "An angel passing before us".
It was a rare television moment, an audience member with multiple sclerosis was talking about the problems he has had and at one point broke down in tears and Segolene came over to him and gave him a hug and encouraged him to finish.
Unbelievably, when the moderator, a conservative newscaster was on camera a few seconds later, he was wiping tears from his eyes!
In one television appearance, she has undone weeks of non stop swiftboat style smears and has suddenly put herself into the hearts of the people. Obviously, I am a fan! I could not imagine an American politician operating without a net for 2 hours nonstop and looking as fresh at the end as she did at the beginning and never once losing her poise. This was more than a success, this was seduction!

Now that's something candidate Hillary Clinton will not be able to do. My fingers are crossed here in California for Segolene.

Hello Microdot,
This is truly good news. I am wishing you and France the best of luck. This is the kind of posting we value to keep us all informed here in the U.S. Good Job!! On a side note, does it seem odd that when one of the Royal Grandchildren is going to be sent to Iraq; British troops are starting to be pulled out? Condaliza Rice did damage control and came out stated that this was all part of the President’s plan and everything is happening on schedule. How dumb do they think we are?
