When Sarkozy Chills

More

A great little Wikileaks nugget on the French president, the American ambassador, and a rabbit:

One "rare glimpse of a relaxed Sarkozy" came when the then interior minister and presidential hopeful invited the US ambassador, Craig Stapleton, to see him in 2006, to say how "proud and honoured" he was to soon be meeting Bush. After the exchange, Sarkozy, who is renowned for introducing his son Louis to dignitaries, opened the patio windows and called the nine-year-old. "Louis appeared at the threshold with a small dog at his feet and a large rabbit in his arms," the memo said. "To shake hands with the ambassador, Louis put down the rabbit – and the dog started chasing the rabbit through Sarkozy's office, which led to the unforgettable sight of Sarkozy, bent over, chasing the dog through the anteroom to his office as the dog chased the rabbit, and Louis filled the room with gleeful laughter."
