France: The Precarious Generation

  • Aired: 04/19/2007
  • 16:08
  • Rating: NR
Election season in France this year has provided high drama. As the French head to the polls, they are not simply choosing their next president but choosing an identity. The country is facing deep schisms over economic and social policy, and each candidate represents a very different future for the Gallic nation of 61 million people.
