But when the story of Macron's rise from longshot to landslide is told, it should be pointed out that he was fortunate in his opponent, because LePen and what she stands for is truly awful. The world does not need leaders who refuse to learn from history and let bigotry stand in for intelligent policy. We don't need verbal bomb-throwers--we need people of good will and honest ability to listen and work with others.
I think the people of France have chosen wisely and taken to heart the difficulties presented by bad examples--not that I'm naming any names.
