Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What sort of vision French President contenders have for the role of France in the rapidly changing world? I think they will follow Mitterand-Chirac policy of engagement with Germany and Russia (and even with China and India) irrespectively who will come to power. That was evident in Mr Prodi behaviour who quickly became "nash" in Moscow. There are some geopolitical reasons behind this direction of big Continental powers policy and I doubt thast Sarkozy would agree to be the poodle's poodle. And of course Englishmen would attach themselves to any American presidents no matter how stupid policies they are going to pursue. That's long term reality, not fantasies.

What I said above probably does not need any illustrations but if you doubt my words - here is the link to recent discussion about Russian American relations that proved - no matter what kind of politicians head countries - national interests are above them.
