American politics in France

I just emailed this to a friend. I took this picture in a bookstore here in Tours a few days ago. Everyone here asks me about the election: who am I supporting, and what do I think will happen?

This Tours bar/resto is even having its own election! Too bad I am six hours ahead and will not be watching the debate live, but (as the French say) youpie! (like yipee!, or hooray!) for the internet for post-debate chatter the next morning.

Youpie! Go ahead, say it–it’s fun!
