    “Who says the French want to be told by a German Chancellor how to vote?”

    That’s a nice Elsass-Lothringen you currently have…

    Hm. Seems like this might be a way to extricate Germany without it looking like it’s their fault… Sarkozy loses, a Socialist comes in with harebrained demands, Merkel bows out in response to ovewhelming pressure from German voters.

    What’re a couple of World Wars between friends?

    I am surprised at the failure to consider the implications of cross border campaigning. The same principle that allows the German chancellor to campaign for the incumbent French President will allow the other foreign leaders to cross their borders and campaign for a challenger to an incumbent. What a diplomatic headache if Sarko loses!
