Until Nicholas Sarkozy came along I never had any real sympathy for French Presidents. More and more I start to like him. PS: While I write these lines I hear about a press conference about PM Olmert's health. Let's hope that not yet another Israeli PM will be able to realize one of his dreams just because his predecessor had to quit as a result of his bad health. On the other hand, this might be an elegant way for Ehud Olmert ( who is the ultimate political animal ) to leave office and avoid some of his mounting legal troubles. I wish him good health in any case.
