THE FRENCH CONNIPTION: Socialists are upset, so it can't be too bad. Britons living in America named Andrew S. have good analyses - Stuttaford and Sullivan, that is.

Now, will Chirac (who will beat the far-right le Pen in a walk in the run-off that Jospin got shut out of) respond to the French people's obvious discontent with less squishy policies? Probably not, unless the Socialists lose the parliament later in the year, which would also be quite an upset.
