No Marianne

French National Front leader Marine Le Pen on Tuesday said she would cast a blank ballot in Sunday’s runoff election for President of France, meaning she will not endorse either incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy or Socialist challenger François Hollande. Most observers believe Hollande is the probable victor. While Sarkozy is probably the closest to Le Pen’s party’s political ideology, she may be biding her time until the next election hoping the Socialist will make a mess of the economy.
