This article is about the lackluster performance of Marine Le Pen in the debate last night. She lacked the fire she had in the 2017 debates and did not attack Macron in all the numerous ways she could. The author made an interesting point that she has worked at a parliamentary level for years and this might have softened her edges. We are hoping she wins, mostly because she is more sympathetic to Russia than Macron. Unfortunately, there is no mention in the article about her stance on Russia.
