88. Not sure of that...
The French have voted for Conservative presidents in most of their elections, though not always for Conservative parliaments. Mitterand was the only socialist out of 6 post-war presidents (De Gaulle, Pompidou, Giscard, Mitterand, Chirac, Sarkozy). So I wouldn't say they got 'buyer's remorse' with all their Conservative presidents.

The Conservative group in France is, to use an American phrase, a big tent, and most would probably be like Democrats rather than Republicans in America. Sarkozy does seem to be a bit to the right of many of them, however.
