A petition has been circulating in France to gather one million signatures for Obama’s candidacy. Entertaining the idea that Obama did want to run for office in France, French law requires that presidents be native to France.
The group evidently picked up some nostalgia from America’s ‘hope and change’ President. “We dreamed about this possibility to vote for someone we really admire,” in November 2016, the group said, pointing out that Obama “could lead us to project ourselves in a bright future.”
