What is true is that Mr. Hollandeâ€™s victory means the end of â€œMerkozy,â€ the Franco-German axis that has enforced the austerity regime of the past two years. This would be a â€œdangerousâ€ development if that strategy were working, or even had a reasonable chance of working. But it isnâ€™t and doesnâ€™t; itâ€™s time to move on. Europeâ€™s voters, it turns out, are wiser than the Continentâ€™s best and brightest.
