Okay, here's a quiz for readers with at least rudimentary French reading skills (like mine.) Find out which candidate you'd probably support in next Sunday's first round of the French Presidential election. This is the "free for all" vote: twelve candidates representing left to right and various curlicues in between. The top two get to run off on May 6. Traditionally, people vote in the first round to express what policies they really want. Then, in the second round, they knuckle under and pick the less bad choice.
Perhaps as testament to my ignorance of French politics, this woman was my choice based on a battery of twenty-five questions.
She's the Green.
In real life, the two run-off contenders will probably come from among Segolene Royal (loosely socialist left), Francois Bayrou (characterized as "center") and Nicolas Sarkozy (the former hard line interior minister from the right.) But then again, last time the rabid racist Jean Marie Le Pen snuck into the second round and even the left had to vote for the rightist Chirac. More about all these candidates, in English, here or here.
H/t to nosemonkey for pointing me to the quiz.
