Attali on Sarko

Friday 26 1988:
Met Nicolas Sarkozy. Discussion on Europe, foreign policy, the role of the presidency of the Republic, etc. Rarely seen someone so sincerely passionate about public service. It's a shame he's not on our side!
- Jacques Attali, Verbatim III, p. 78
I stumbled upon this journal entry of Attali's yesterday. I wonder if he had any inkling this man might be president almost 20 years later?

I guess it tells you that Attali's book is not 100% self-serving BS. He also could see the obvious, which is good.
