Obama for French prez?
A petition to persuade former US President Barack Obama to run in the French presidential election was recently launched.
Obama 2017 posters were also posted in Paris.
“Barack Obama has completed his second term as President of the United States,” NPR, in an online report dated February 23, quoted the the movement’s website.
“Why not hire him as president of France? … [He] has the best resume in the world for the job,” the website said.
The site’s co-creator said that “[i]t’s definitely a joke” but that “it could make people think a little bit about what we could do differently in French politics. … the idea was to make people wake up,” according to the report.
