Newly-elected French President Nicolas Sarkozy was profiled on 60 Minutes this past Sunday. In addition to being very revealing about the man and what drives him, the interview with Lesley Stahl also revealed a trait I wish we had more of in our American politicians: no patience for the media’s incessant invasion of privacy.

President Sarkozy

As soon as Lesley Stahl began asking questions about his failed marriage, President Sarkozy abruptly ended the interview. Classic.

Thx to President Sarkozy and 60 Minutes
