In the past, I have made fun of undecided voters, calling them all sorts of names. But now, I am one. I will be voting in the French presidential election this year and I do not know who to vote for. I think right now there are three semi-reasonable choices: socialist Segolene Royal, centrist Francois Bayrou, and right-wing Nicolas Sarkozy. Over the next few months I will be researching the candidates and posting my thoughts on this blog. Please feel free to use this post if you have anything to tell me at the outset of my research.
