France, 'non' Turkey?

(HT to Instapundit)

John O'Sullivan of the Chicago Sun-Times, has a larger view of the looming European crisis.

The 'Non' vote in France this past weekend was really a 'Oui' for more socialism, more welfare handouts, and a shift away from Chirac's right-wing party. (Thanks to my brother-in-law, Hori, a naturalized Parisian, for explaining this to me.)

Consider that folks, in France Chirac is considered to the right because he's a de Gaullist. Here, he'd be left of Bill Clinton.
