Chirac's Address to the Nation.

French President Chirac addressed the nation on national TV tonight. Here's a picture of his appearance:

As always he spoke with a French tricolor and European flag behind him. Other than that, the background did not show the usual grand gilded decor of the Elysée Palace. Quite appropriate!
The oddest part is that for the first time in probably 30 years, Chirac was wearing glasses (as you can see on the picture above). Why did he decide to do that? Surely he carefully chose how he would look before the nation so I wonder what this means.. Any message here? Or is it simply the unfortunate illustration of his shortsightedness?
As regard the content of the speech... I'll say more later. Time to go to bed.
