Sarkozy Takes No Chances

Via Time Magazine:

Only a month after the French went to the polls in near-record numbers to vote in the most impassioned Presidential campaign in recent history, they now seem to be sleep-walking toward legislative elections whose outcome many consider a foregone conclusion. President Nicolas Sarkozy has deftly built on the momentum of his victory in that election, and now looks set to win one of the most commanding parliamentary majorities ever. Still, the conservatives are taking no chances, waging a surprisingly aggressive campaign that contrasts sharply with the laid-back voter attitudes ahead of Saturday's vote.
