‘Le John Kennedy noir’

Oh, this is rich:

[T]he French do seem for the most part keen to welcome “le John Kennedy noir” (the black JFK) as AFP describes him. The media also is mostly welcoming. Le
Figaro
, in an article headlined “Obama discovers a Europe already conquered,” calls him the antithesis of Bush and also reports that 84% of the French have a favorable opinion of him compared with just 33% having a favorable opinion of McCain. The article also touches on the “JFK factor” and comments that even though Europe would welcome pretty much any non-Republican after Bush, Obama is even more welcome because of his opposition to the war in Iraq and his progressive ideas on social issues.

Les Amis des Noirs! And of course, any American politician beloved by the French is destined for victory, as Jean Francois Kerry could testify.
