I, like Gov. Romney, am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I wrote "mormon", I did so, knowing that most Americans don't know the REAL name of the Church. I was inferring that, as a "mormon" missionary, he SPOKE FRENCH. I may have a bias, (I've already voted), but I am entitled to my opinion. As a woman, I'm hardly bigoted for voting for a man! With all candidates, I look to the qualifications, not the gender, race, or, generally, the religion. If blacks can vote for Obama, Why can't I vote for a "mormon"--even though I feel he is more qualified?

PARIS -- The people of France have spoken on the subject of the U.S. presidential election. Naturally, you couldn't care less about what anyone else (let alone the French) thinks about you or your electoral choices, right?

The French aren't particularly interested in appearing too keen on America, either. A Harris Interactive poll found that 66 percent of respondents either care little about the U.S. presidential race or not at all. However, should a gun be put to their head mid Gallic shrug, 88 percent of them would take Barack Obama, merci, with 10 percent choosing Mitt Romney.

When this...
