1 term’s enough for France’s Carla Bruni


PARIS (AP) — French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy says it’s up to her husband to decide whether to run for a second term in office in 2012 but says “one term would satisfy me.”

In an interview that aired Sunday on TF1 television, Bruni-Sarkozy hailed her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy, as “someone who’s committed from head to toe.” She adds, “it’s his business (to decide) whether to run.”

Asked about a survey in which a majority of respondents said she was not close enough to the French people, Bruni-Sarkozy says “they don’t see me as I really am.”

Bruni-Sarkozy, a former supermodel-turned-singer, was interviewed in her apartment in western Paris.
