France choosing new president

So, it’s showtime in France today—- No interest in making a political post here (really); however, regardless of your viewpoint, there’s no denying that today’s second round vote is a biggie.

If you’re learning French, my money is on both the winning and losing speeches tonight being powerful and historic.  Even if you’re not into politics, it’s hard to undersell the significance of what Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron end up saying by the time the campaign trail finishes tonight.  (Round 1 victory speeches from Macron and Le Pen below).
