Shouldn't the effort at this point be on the legislative
elections anyway? A Chirac win for the presidency
seems about as sure a thing as one can think of.
The important thing would seem to be work to ensure
that the election of a leftwing dominated National Assembly.
That will of course mean more years of cohabitation.
As I understand it the legislative elections in France are
also two-round elections, so people will be free to cast
their votes in the first round for the far left candidates,
and then if they have to in the second round, then
they can (if none of the far left candidates made it
past the first round) then vote for a Socialist or Communist

It seems to me that it will proabably be a waste of time
and resources to work for blank vote in the second round
of the presidential election, when it is the legislative elections
that are of more importance in the first place.
