Chirac will reflect on future

Even at this late date, French President Jacques Chirac is continuing to make public statements indicating a possible presidential run. Just today at a press conference Chirac stated that the question of his candidacy "deserves reflection and therefore I will reflect." Coming almost on top of the end of the UMP primary, which will annoint Nicolas Sarkozy as its candidate, these comments continue to undercut Sarkozy's ability to gain in the polls and take on Segolene Royal, who is returning to France from a much less controversial trip to China in comparison to her last overseas voyage.
