Chriac says goodbye, but not to Sarkozy
With the swarming press coverage and lack of surprises, its hardly worth mentioning that today French President Jacques Chirac officially announced that he will not seek a third term.
This has little affect on the current race, except for the fact that Chirac has not yet endorsed his party's nominee, Nicolas Sarkozy. That being said, at the moment Sarkozy needs no support from his estranged mentor, unless he has the unfortune to face Francois Bayrou in the second round.
