Hollande Renounces and Is Renounced, along with Sarkozy

François Hollande has abandoned his proposed constitutional amendment to strip nationality from convicted terrorists. Having torn his party apart for nothing, he has now given up on his symbolic but futile assertion of toughness.

Meanwhile, polling indicates that the French do not want to see a rerun of the 2012 Hollande-Sarkozy presidential contest. They want both candidates to be replaced by others. Quelle surprise!
