PostHollande Endorses Clinton (Bienvenido Macario, USA, 07/04/16 6:09 am)
French President Hollande has endorsed Hillary Clinton. Will this help Hillary's candidacy or will it doom her White House bid?
Pres. Hollande has such a lousy sense of timing endorsing a pro-open border candidate like Hillary when the 4th of July is here and the Brexit vote is seen as UK's independence day.

JE comments: Vanity Fair ran this tongue-in-cheek article with the subtitle: "Finally, Hillary has secured the critical French vote." Note that Marine Le Pen, who is leading the polls for the April 2017 elections, has endorsed Donald Trump.
Isn't it against diplomatic protocol for a head of state to endorse a candidate in a foreign election? Tim Brown, can you comment?
