Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Er, Mitterrand was in office for 2 years longer than Chirac.

That said, he was never a leftist, he just played one to get elected. But at least his was a PS administration.
You could also argue that Chirac wasn't sincerely very right wing. But since 2007, well... Now that is a turn towards American right wing nonsense.
