How Will Sarkozy Affect the U.S.?

The Cafferty File, part of The Situation Room on CNN, poses a question every hour The Situation Room is on. This is today's 4:00 question, and Thoughts on the World's response.
4 p.m.: How will France's election of a pro-American president affect U.S. relations with Europe?

Not much for George Bush. Sarkozy has not stated he is pro-Bush; he is pro-American. But the next president will have a much easier time dealing with the French and Iraq. Sarkozy has criticized the way the Iraq War has been handled, not by the U.S., but by France. He was not a supporter of the war, but has said the France shouldn’t let her ally down.
