At this moment, the danger is that the FI will re-re-shape French left-wing identity in nationalist terms. This would undermine the revival of a progressive left and strengthen Macron's view of a society where left and right are seen through the narrowest lens of their most regressive streaks.

As most Macron-related article conclude, these are early days. Macron's personality is winning the elections, but the hard work is only about to begin. Will he be able to work with what may be the largest majority in the history of the French 5th Republic to alleviate some of the problems that beset France? From chronic unemployment to thorny race relations, the list is long. At the very least, however, it is refreshing to observe a French politician able to score points on cautious optimism.

After years marked by tensions and discontent, there is a breeze of optimism, expectation and hope in the air.

That's why we all still need to pay attention to France. We have not yet entered the aftermath of the reinvention of French politics, even as the presidential elections have finished. If international media meant to raise up the presidential rounds as an example of what the rest of Europe can expect over the next few years, it needs to realize that the race has not yet reached its finish line.

A period of cohabitation with what could very well be a Républicains prime minister would not only be a major setback for Macron but also represent a further opportunity to grow for the French far-right. Le Pen may have been defeated in Sunday's presidential election, but Front National and their increasingly loyal supporters are only getting started.
