France is at the heart of Europe and the heart of the EU. What has happened to the dream of a united Europe that more than 40 percent of the French electorate say that they will vote for a candidate for whom the vision of a federal Europe is dead. The Europen Union and the euro will not survive a rejection by France. Whatever the odds of a triumph of the anti-EU vote in France two things are certain--no EU politician expected the euro to be on trial for its life nearly 20 years after its introduction, and whoever wins the French election nothing will ever be the same on the continent. Join us for a look at the most momentous European election since the Second World War.
