As the 2012 elections are just around the corner here, I'm sure we'll be seeing many of the candidates on television, particularly La Grande Journal on Canal +, so I thought I'd do something slightly different than normal. Personally, it shouldn't be very simple for Sarkozy to get reelected. Then again, Jacques Chirac served two terms, and look where he is now. He doesn't actually have to declare his candidacy as incumbent until March. He might have some damage control on his hands though after the Bettancourt Affair, the Karachi Affair, and now his wife's own issues with the Born AIDS Free Affair. But I could talk about the Sarkozy's all day.
Now let's get to the actual meat of this article. Technically this is a ripoff of something I saw over at Maybe it's Just Me. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend it! He put in his Top Five Odd Crushes. I thought I'd just put a few of the cute French Politicians.
As one might expect, Jean Sarkozy is the son of Nicolas Sarkozy and his first wife, Marie-Dominique Culioli. (For those of you counting along at home, Monsieur Le President is currently on wife number 3 and he still ran as a family values candidate in 2000 while still married to wife number 2 whom he divorced shortly after the election.) The only thing he's known for, much like the rest of the Sarkozy family, is scandal. He's hot though. Unfortunately, he's also straight, and married. So, it's unfortunate.
Benoît Hamon is the spokesman for the Socialist Party, who is just wonderful. I just don't know what else to say about him other than damn. He's just so pretty. He's one of the few French politicians I know of who isn't involved in a scandal of some sort.
So what a surprise, given the picture, that this guy is a source of scandal too. Apparently, he's too sexy for Tunisia, where he was recently appointed by Sarkozy as the Ambassador. He's also had a few problems with being too abrupt with the press and there are Tunisians calling for his resignation.
