Despite intermittent connection problems, I saw enough of the great debate to get the flavor. Hollande did well enough, I thought, and Sarkozy was unable to wipe the sneer from his face. So as far as I'm concerned, we remain at the status quo ante, which is Hollande up by 6. Anybody see it differently?
And what happened to Pujadas and Ferrari? Barbie and Ken might as well have been actual dolls instead of doll look-alikes. They neither moderated, directed, nor civilized the debate. On the whole, it was as disappointing as the rest of the campaign, and if I have to hear Sarkozy say one more time "folie dépensière" or "mensonge," I think I'll scream.
