Hollande on all fronts: President vows to defend France's Republican ideals (part two)

Francois Hollande's Thursday press conference had a different ring to it. After the Paris attacks, he is feeling the momentum of a 20-point jump in the polls - announcing that he was en route to Kiev to try to prevent "total war" in Ukraine. He also pledged to counter radicalisation and defend the very French notion of secularism. Who stands to reap the political benefits of a France, and a Europe, with identity issues, potentially another Greek crisis, and a war on its eastern flank in Ukraine?
