  1. That explains this quote by a French professor of English Lit at Condorcet College in Paris:

    “What is a little disconcerting for the French is an American president who seems to be principled. The idea that politics should be based on principles is unimaginable because principles lead to ideology, and ideology is dangerous.”


    Apparently the entire French population thinks that way.
