Based on his photographs, I think there is very little likelihood that the Socialist candidate François Hollande will be elected as president of France. The man is so wimpy and recessive he makes Woody Allen look like Arnold Schwartzenegger.
But maybe I’m wrong. The winner of a presidential election tends to be the candidate who best captures the spirit of his time. And who better captures the spirit of our time than Hollande, the passive, nondescript white man surrounded by hulking blacks?
(See also the campaign video of Hollande’s visit to a black neighborhood.)

They say Hollande is afraid of the camera and has refused to debate Sarkozy except for the one debate scheduled for May 1. He reads his lines and has trouble with any kind of improvising.LA replies:

One topic I must try to cover is the mobilized support for Hollande by the Muslims. This was true in the first round, and it will be an important factor in the second. This is the reason why so many who voted for Marine are now thinking that Sarkozy is the lesser evil.Brett A. writes:
Your post about Hollande reminded me of a movie I saw recently titled District 13. In this French movie the protagonist is a French police officer who works undercover against criminal gangs. The bad guys are French racists who want to wipe out the immigrants in District 13. The whole movie is a glorification of the non-white, but the end is a lot like your description of the French president. He is some small wimpy guy in a room with a bunch of angry immigrants who, purely in their own self-interest have prevented District 13 from being destroyed. Wimp-man goes into a long spiel about how they are the future of France etc. He fits your description of Hollande almost perfectly. Wikipedia link about the movie.
