Sarkozy also saw his butt kicked sunday in the senate election, for the first time since the end of WW2, the socialists control the senate.

There's presidential elections in april in 2012 in France. Sarkozy is gonna get his butt kicked most likely.

The new socialist government might quit bailouts/increase them with no possible way to pay for them... which will end up with a big clusterfuck either way.
