Romance is in the air again for Mary-Kate Olsen.

According to Us, the actress-turned-fashion designer is dating Olivier Sarkozy, who is the brother of the former French president, Nicholas Sarkozy. An insider tells Us, “It’s true, they’re dating, and she’s definitely interested in him.”

There is a 17 year age difference between the Frenchman, who is 42 and Olsen, who is 25. A source suggests she is comfortable with the age-gap.

“MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her,” a friend says. “She got the kids out of her system. Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed with guys.”

The New York Post quotes a source as saying Olsen and Sarkozy are “head over heels.”

File:Eamon Gilmore Conference 2010 cropped.jpg

May 7, 2012

Writing in the Corriere della Sera newspaper, the columnist Sergio Romano wrote that in “the European Union there now exists an opposition formed by a broad array of movements that are too diverse to march together, but numerous enough to make life difficult for those whose will have to govern their countries in the near future.”

In Dublin, Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore, who is also the leader of the Labour Party, endorsed Mr. Hollande’s call for a new fiscal order. “Put simply, you can’t have economic growth unless you also have stability, but neither can you have stability without growth. It is clear that, with the election of Mr. Hollande, there is a growing number of allies in Europe who share this view.”

Further afield, China said it was “ready to work” with the new French administration, news reports said. But in Russia, violent street protests and the inauguration of Vladimir V. Putin for a third term as president on Monday eclipsed news of the French election. If anything, Mr. Sarkozy’s acknowledgment of defeat contrasted with Mr. Putin’s extraordinary grip on power in the Kremlin.

“A lot of people in our government believe real democracy doesn’t exist,” Mikhail G. Delyagin, director of the Institute of Globalization Studies, a research concern in Moscow, said in an interview Monday. “They don’t mind that everything is democratic in France but not at home.”

Mr. Sarkozy, he said, “admitted his defeat, congratulated the winner and behaved as a grown-up.” It was a model for Russia, Mr. Delyagin said.

Mr. Putin, meanwhile, congratulated Mr. Hollande in a message reported by Interfax.

“The citizens of France have entrusted you with being the leader of the country in what is quite a difficult and a very important period, when not just Europe but the entire world community face the urgent task of overcoming the effects of the financial and economic crisis and building new models for cooperation,” Mr. Putin said.

Although most of the Arab world was too busy with its own unrest to notice Mr. Sarkozy’s defeat, it was big news in Libya, where Mr. Sarkozy’s leading role in the NATO intervention has made him a hero of the revolution that overthrew Col. Muammar el Qaddafi.

Mr. Sarkozy was celebrated across the country a few weeks ago on a national holiday to mark the anniversary of the day that French military planes swooped down to stop a column of Qaddafi tanks from marching into the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, where many of the country’s current interim leaders had huddled together in fear of an impending massacre. Grateful revolutionaries have spray-painted “Sarkozy” in rainbow colors on the walls of cities around the country, and on Sunday night many Libyan Web pages noted his loss with a salute: “Merci, Sarkozy.”

Opponents of the Libyan revolution, meanwhile, reveled in the defeat. In recent weeks, former officials of the Qaddafi government have done everything they could to bring down the French president, including leaking reports that the Qaddafi government supported Mr. Sarkozy’s first election campaign or that, during the Qaddafi years, Mr. Sarkozy sought to sell Libya fighter jets and nuclear power. One former adviser to Colonel Qaddafi provided The New York Times with what appeared to be a transcript of a congratulatory phone call the Libyan leader made to the Mr. Sarkozy when he took office.

“I have kept a wonderful memory of the kind of analysis I have heard from you,” Mr. Sarkozy tells Colonel Qaddafi in the transcript, “and you really do deserve this title, the Leader.”

Sun May 6, 2012          2:25pm EDT

Socialist candidate Francois Hollande won France’s presidential election runoff on Sunday, beating President Nicolas Sarkozy by a clear margin, according to projections by pollsters.

Polling institutes predicted Hollande would win between 51.8 and 52.0 percent of the vote versus Sarkozy’s tally of between 48.0 and 48.2 percent.

Hollande, who had led conservative incumbent Sarkozy in polls for months, would become France’s first Socialist president since Francois Mitterrand left office in 1995.

Francois Hollande: the Socialist pup on course to become France's next leader

April 19, 2012

The candidate — energetic, bold, indefatigable — is sure he will win, aides say, as he pulls energy from his big crowds.

“Take your destiny in your hands!” Nicolas Sarkozy shouted to the 100,000 or so who came to the Place de la Concorde to see him last Sunday. “People of France! Don’t have fear! They will not win if you decide that you will win!”

But the team around him has quietly started to have doubts about victory, and is debating the best strategy to try to overcome serious odds.

Mr. Sarkozy is in deep trouble and is looking, for now, as if he could be the first one-term French president since 1981. He appears to be running neck and neck with his main challenger, the Socialist candidate François Hollande, in the first round of voting on Sunday, when 10 candidates are competing. But all the opinion polls show Mr. Sarkozy losing to Mr. Hollande in a face-off two weeks later.

His possible defeat carries implications that would radiate far beyond Paris. Mr. Sarkozy has had contentious but valuable relationships with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, a fellow conservative, on European and euro zone issues; with the British on defense issues, including the Libyan war; and with President Obama on issues involving Iran and Israel, NATO and Russia.

A victory by even a centrist Socialist like Mr. Hollande, who has advocated higher taxes on the rich and a greater emphasis on growth over austerity, would create immediate strains with Germany and rattle financial markets that are already nervous about the size of France’s debt. Mr. Hollande has also said that he wants to pull French troops out of Afghanistan sooner than NATO has agreed to do. Still, he says that his first visit abroad would be to Berlin, no matter how chilly the reception.

Mr. Sarkozy faces an electoral dilemma that is inherently tactical. Presuming he gets through to the runoff on May 6, does he continue to run to the right, or move to the center? And will it make enough of a difference anyway in a nation that admires what he promised at the beginning of his term five years ago — a “rupture” with the past — but not what he has delivered, which is a stagnant economy and unemployment at its highest level in 12 years?

Even more troubling for Mr. Sarkozy, the polls indicate that many French simply do not like him — his negative ratings are high — and that many of them will vote in the second round for the bland Mr. Hollande or simply stay home rather than see Mr. Sarkozy back in the Élysée Palace for another five years.

“Sarkozy is facing a real problem,” said Christian Malard, a senior analyst for French television. “Historically, when we look at the polls this close to the first round, no one has ever bridged such a big gap and won. He’s had some good ideas, and people say we need to reform this country in a world of ferocious competition. But Sarkozy is paying the price of his behavior, his manner — always in a rush and trying to solve every problem — and the French didn’t like that.”

Catherine Nay, Mr. Sarkozy’s biographer, calls the president a terrible communicator. “He never capitalizes on his successes, he changes the subject every day, people forget the next day what he did the day before, he fogs the brain,” she said. “He’s the victim of too fiery a temperament.”

Mr. Sarkozy is running hard to place first on Sunday to give him momentum going into the second round. And even if he trails Mr. Hollande on Sunday, he will remember that Jacques Chirac trailed his Socialist rival in the first round in 1995 and won anyway.

But to win on May 6, Mr. Sarkozy would need the votes of many who on Sunday will choose either the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, or the centrist, François Bayrou. Some experts suggest that Mr. Sarkozy may need as much as two-thirds of the voters from each of those two very different camps to win. That will require a difficult balancing act, the experts say.

“The trend is not good for Sarkozy, the gap is widening,” said Pierre Haski, the editor of the online newspaper Rue89. “He’s facing a real dilemma, because he needs to talk to two completely different constituencies, Bayrou and Le Pen.”

Given the animosity for Mr. Sarkozy felt by numerous Le Pen voters, Mr. Haski thinks that the president will move to the center, “where he has most to gain.” Mr. Sarkozy will continue to try to frighten centrist voters with Mr. Hollande’s vague economic plans, which feature higher taxes and more state spending, Mr. Haski said, while “a lot of Le Pen voters will at the end say, ‘We don’t want to see the neo-commies in the Élysée.’ ”

Mr. Hollande faces a threat from his left — from the rabble-rousing former Socialist Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who is challenging Ms. Le Pen for third place in the polls. But his followers are likely to hold their noses and vote for Mr. Hollande, simply to defeat the right.

Working to his advantage is the fact that the public has tired of the grim business of budget cutting and is yearning for a different approach. Mr. Hollande is providing that, in the form of higher taxes on the rich, more state spending and an assault on inequality, themes that could conceivably reverberate beyond the Continent in subsequent years, particularly if they succeed.

Growing inequality has become a hot-button topic across Europe, and if Mr. Hollande were to win, the move to impose higher taxes on the wealthy could get a boost elsewhere, even in the United States, where President Obama has already promoted the so-called Buffett Rule to impose a minimum tax rate on incomes in excess of $1 million a year.

A potential victory by Mr. Hollande is already making the markets nervous about the willingness of France, and perhaps other European countries, to stick with pledges of austerity. That is true even though he promises to balance France’s budget by 2017. That, in itself, would limit his policy choices, says a prominent economist, Nicolas Baverez. But the same is true for Mr. Sarkozy, he says.

“No matter who is elected, France will have a major confrontation with the markets,” Mr. Baverez said. “There is very low growth and a huge public debt, and a refusal of the French political class to deal with the necessary cuts in public spending.” But with Mr. Hollande, he said, the test from the markets would come sooner.

Patrick Buisson is the éminence grise of the Sarkozy entourage, credited with fashioning the victorious Sarkozy campaign of 2007. A deeply religious man who began as a journalist on a rightist publication, Mr. Buisson argues that Mr. Sarkozy is wrongly criticized for flashy habits and rich friends, is a victim of the global economic crisis and will emerge victorious.

“Sarkozy doesn’t love money, he loves success, which is very different,” Mr. Buisson said in an interview.

The election is really about values and character, Mr. Buisson said, and Mr. Sarkozy will continue to defend the fundamental values of France and to challenge the competence of Mr. Hollande.

“Politics is the art of managing symbols, because they speak to the collective imagination,” Mr. Buisson said. Mr. Sarkozy won in 2007, he said, because he succeeded in combining the traditional electorate of the right with workers, traditionally on the left, worried about crime and immigration. The 2007 campaign was built “around the value of work and the rehabilitation of the value of work,” which was also a riposte to those who live off the state and thus off the work of others, he said.

Today, Mr. Sarkozy’s campaign is built around the “values of national identity,” of a protective state standing against the threats of globalization and uncontrolled immigration, Mr. Buisson said. “This time, the central theme has been to be the candidate of borders,” he added, “of the border that protects.” So Mr. Sarkozy has called for a Europe with tighter frontiers, fewer immigrants, more regulation and more protectionism for French industry.

All of this is meant to be a contrast to the notion of a Socialist Party of bureaucrats and professors who live off the state and favor multiculturalism, rather than reinforcing basic French values like assimilation and secularism, Mr. Buisson said. It is Mr. Sarkozy, not Mr. Hollande, who is best able to solve “the three crises that we have suffered — financial crisis, economic crisis and monetary crisis,” which “together have aggravated all the problems of French society,” he said.

Mr. Buisson has urged Mr. Sarkozy not to change strategy, and according to Le Figaro, the daily newspaper most aligned with the president, Mr. Sarkozy has so far decided to stay the course. “When Sarkozy does Sarko, he climbs; when he does Chirac, he drops,” a Sarkozy aide, who was not named, told Le Figaro.

To win, Mr. Buisson said, Mr. Sarkozy needs to turn around 1 million voters from an electorate of 44 million. “People vote differently in the second round,” he said. “The polls are never predictive, but just a snapshot in time.”

The second round is about the momentum won in the first, Mr. Buisson insisted, adding, “From the moment he has the momentum, he can reverse the balance of forces.”
