Quote:
PARIS (Reuters) - French President Jacques Chirac announced on Sunday he would not seek re-election next month, bowing out of frontline politics after a 45-year career that consisted of symbolic gestures as much as concrete policies.

Chirac has served as president since 1995 and his widely expected decision to stand aside marks the end of an era for France, clearing the way for a new generation of politicians.

"I will not seek your backing for a new mandate," the 74-year-old said in a televised address to the nation.

Chirac will perhaps be best remembered outside France for his denunciation of U.S. policy in Iraq and his determination to maintain his country's leading role in international affairs.

It is an end of an era for France, lets hope they get someone who has some sense and remembers who his countries traditional friends are.

Mr. Sarkozy seems to be pro-Bush and hard on terrorism.

I am quite skeptical about France. I think they are never going to be a good player on the world stage.

Being a moderate socialist, instead of an extreme socialist, is France's idea of conservatism methinks.

Who ever governs France serves as a model for Quebecers, who ever governs Quebec dictates the political slant of the rest of Canada.
