But I would also like to point out that people on both sides of the political fence are unhappy.

The state of their personal satisfaction with life is frickin' irrelevant. What matters is the HE IS STILL MINISTER OF CULTURE. Until he resigns or is fired, Sarkozy and his party are condoning him.

Personally, if my head of state has such a huge following of foreign people, I'm wondering where his true interests lie. The President of the United States should always act in the best interests of the US. The Prime Minister of Canada should always act in the best interests of Canada. The Chieftain of the Wasabigoto Tribe of the Amazon should always act in the best interests of the Wasabigoto Tribe. If they aren't, then they have no place to be the leader of their respective peoples.

I don't recall Bush promoting little boy rapping bastards as 'culture minister'.

If you get Obama in 2012 it'll be awesome, your government's political parties will have a majority so powerful there is no way anyone can stop them from doing what they want, and yet nothing will continue to get done because they can't agree with themselves.

I guess you haven't been paying attention to the actual politics in America, but Obama's presidency and the Democrat majority in congress has been nothing short of a joke. They have their entire team in office, everything is under their control, and they still can't get anything useful actually accomplished.
