This  guy's a FRENCH President??
PARIS, May 7 - Two days before the first round of the presidential election last month, Nicolas Sarkozy  donned a red checked shirt, jeans and cowboy boots, mounted a small white horse named Universe and rode around the Camargue country in France 's deep south. A gaggle of reporters and cameramen followed him in a cart pulled by a tractor. The black bulls in the nearby pasture stayed away.
"A vague resemblance to the look of George W. Bush  on his Texan ranch," is how the left-leaning newspaper LibÃ©ration described Mr. Sarkozy, who was elected president on Sunday, beating the Socialist candidate SÃ©golÃ¨ne Royal  in a runoff. The newspaper dismissed the event as a media stunt, saying, "Everything for the image, right up until the last minute."
Mr. Sarkozy is unabashedly pro-American, a man who openly proclaims his love of Ernest Hemingway , Steve McQueen and Sylvester Stallone and his admiration for America's strong work ethic and its belief in upward mobility.
The last film that made Mr. Sarkozy cry was Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion." He once said he wanted Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" as his victory song. He calls himself "proud" to wear the label "Sarkozy the American."
Man... Now if we could only get the Democrats to act that way.
