Now let's hope he'll actually be able to govern.
Let's hear from Claire Mathieu from her part of France!
UPDATE 5/9: A telling addendum to France's election: There was a huge document dump from hackers on Friday, two days before the election. The materials were from Macron's campaign. According to an NYTimes story Tuesday, this seemed to have little impact on the race. "Why the Macron Hacking Attack Landed with a Thud in France."
First, it was very late in the campaign and second, there is a black-out period before French elections so that voters can think! The candidates fall silent. In this case, so did the media though they were not barred from publishing or discussing the hacked material. Le Monde, France's premier newspaper has said they will report on these when they have been through them, hence no SHOCKING HEADLINES!
Correspondent and commentator David Leonhardt of the Times has an op-ed piece contrasting French and U.S. media practices suggesting he and his colleagues can learn something from the French. And France does not have an equivalent of Fox News....lucky them.
