The Child King A Weakened Sarkozy Faces His Last Big Campaign

Nicolas Sarkozy is unpopular because he has behaved more like an upstart than a president. He's trying to get re-elected, claiming to have changed, but it might be too late. The French people prefer his Socialist opponent François Hollande, who would bring change to France and upheaval to Europe.
