I agree. Antonio does deserve a political success after many years of seeing right-wingers win all over Europe.

Congratulations Smiley Even if you're not pleased with the actual numbers right now...I'm sure you'll forget about that when Hollande moves into the palace... Wink

Well, thank you people. Smiley I apreciate your kind comments very much (even though I'd rather have avoided seeing a certain map again) and I try to share your joy as much as I can.

So, we won. And we kicked Sarko's ass. He won't be annoying us anymore, and this is something awesome. Something worth partying. It's a great day for France.

However, what a disappointment... What a narrow victory... What an undeserved result ! Cry I can't help resenting the unfairness of life. And the absolute mind-numbing retardedness of voters.

But still, we won. Smiley We're FREE AT LAST. Cheesy

Merci pour une victoire de la gauche!

Finally, some hope for us European lefties. Hollande has by-far exceeded the expectations I had of him after the DSK affair and I'm extremely happy he's won! Hopefully he can try and get us all out of this austerity crap hole!

I suppose that means I'll lose my student council election for VP, not get a job this summer, & fail in my quest to join local politics? Sad Tongue

10 years, to be fair. Wink

But it was ten very painful years, the past five being the worst...

Well, it's not like we're really safe yet. Let's wait for the legislatives before triumphing.
