Sarko, as he s widely known, was up against a rising tide of ennui among French voters in the April 20 election, before a gunman murdered a rabbi and three children outside a Jewish school, which followed the fatal shootings of three French soldiers, including two Muslims, according to The Star. What did budge them was hard talk on immigration control, declaring that France had too many foreigners and pledging to chop numbers of foreign residents dramatically if he won another term and there is never a good time for vicious, cold-blooded killing. But for France s president Nicolas Sarkozy, on the eve of the most crucial election of his career, timing is everything. For months, even the president s popular pop-star wife and baby, and the sex scandal that toppled charismatic rival Dominique Strauss-Kahn, couldn t pull his numbers off the curb as unemployment neared 10 per cent, and the country s stellar credit rating was downgraded.
