A group of voters in France is urging former President Obama to run in the French presidential election this spring.
“At a time when France is about to vote massively for the extreme right, we can still give a lesson of democracy to the planet by electing a French President, a foreigner,” the French website for “OBAMA17” reads, ABC News first reported on Thursday.
The group is jockeying for 1 million signatures, even though Obama is not French and France requires its presidential candidates to be natives.
“We started dreaming about this idea two months before the end of Obama’s presidency,” an OBAMA17 spokesman told ABC. "We dreamed about this possibility to vote for someone we really admire, someone who could lead us to project ourselves in a bright future."
