I periodically get emails asking whether I support a presidential candidate. Most of these messages complain that I’ve been critical of Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, etc, and inquire if there’s anybody I like.
As a general rule, I don’t respond because I work at a think tank and we’re not supposed to be involved in partisan politics according to IRS rules.
But I found a loophole, so the time has come for me to announce my preferred candidate for the 2012 presidential election. And I’m making this much-anticipated announcement even though I won’t be casting a vote.
I want people to select François Hollande.
Who is Mr. Hollande, you ask? Well, actually, he’s Monsieur Hollande, because I’m making an endorsement in France’s presidential election.
For those of you who follow such matters, you may be wondering why I would prefer Monsieur Hollande. After all, he is the candidate of the French Socialist Party.
Read these excerpts from today’s Wall Street Journal editorial page and you’ll begin to understand why. We’ll start with a quick glimpse at France’s dire situation.
