There is a strong chance that the election just went to Le Pen. We'll see how it comes out.

Listened to a long piece about the French election on NPR last night.

Even before this last shooting no one was willing to call it one way or the other. Now?

I'm inclined to think the Left will be the big losers. Maybe the center right candidate will take it though he is no prize. I'm inclined to think a lot of people are going to hesitate before the pull the le Pen lever. Maybe enough to squeak her out.
