FILE This Wednesday, May 2, 2012 file photo shows Socialist Party candidate for the presidential election Francois Hollande, on a wall screen during a televised debate with President and conservative rival Nicolas Sarkozy, at the TF1 television studio, in Boulogne-Billancourt, outside Paris. The last time France voted for president, Francois Hollande was a portly, smiley man with a wishy-washy image playing second fiddle to Segolene Royal, his Socialist party's candidate and the mother of his four kids. Now he's a man with a trim waistline and promising future who managed a tough presidential debate with the air of, well, a president. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus) less
