FRENCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS TODAY

You thought that all the fun was over when Rick Santorum dropped out of the US presidential race? Fear not. There are still fun election activities happening around the world.

I am sitting here waiting for the polls to close in the French presidential election, and you can watch that live coverage here from France 2 and the news channel BFM. It's always fun to watch the results and the analysis, even if you have no clue what they are saying. For a look back at how election nights were covered in France in years past, here's a look back.

Right now it looks like Francois Hollande, the Socialist, could be about to oust incumbent President Nicolas Sarkozy, but it will likely take a second round of voting before it's official. Complicating matters are the numerous third-party candidates including the infamous Marine Le Pen, a woman who makes the aforementioned Santorum look like a flaming liberal.

This was the last poll results before election day. We'll see if they hold up.
