Call Her Undecideable

At least she didn't go for Sego:

The wife of Nicolas Sarkozy did not vote in the election that saw him win the French presidency, a website said Sunday, claiming that a newspaper which had the information first gave in to pressure not to reveal it.

....Contacted by AFP, the newspaper's managing editor Jacques Esperandieu said that he had personally taken the decision not to publish the article, judging after lengthy deliberation that it concerned "the private sphere."

He also received "a certain number of phone calls from people stressing the very private and very personal nature of the information," Esperandieu said.

....Cecilia Sarkozy, 49, is a fiercely independent former model and PR executive seen as unlikely to fit easily into the discreet role of first lady.
