A question for our French readers out there

If there was a guy who was partially of Arab descent on the Socialist Party ticket, who was somewhat on the left end of the party, and the French Left started rallying around him treating him like he was a candidate from the alliance that existed between the Greens and the constellation of Trotskyist parties, would you say that the French Left was deluded? This is essentially how I feel about the adoration given to Barack Obama by people to the left here in the United States, even by some socialists like Barbara Ehrenreich, although not by many of what would be considered to be the 'Left' in Europe, who have a lot less numbers here in the United States.
