London, Nov 20 : France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has said that her country is delighted that Barack Obama has won the U.S. presidential election.
Bruni-Sarkozy, who is in the US to promote her album "Comme Si de Rien N'Etait", was on the "Late Show With David Letterman" on November 18 when she spoke about the presidential choice.
"France is thrilled, delighted," the Telegraph quoted her as having said on the show.
"I think the whole world is delighted," she added.
She was even asked whether her husband, who met U.S. President George W. Bush last weekend at a crisis summit of world leaders, got along well with his American counterpart.
"They have to. No choice," she said.
The Italian born singer also shed some light on her whirlwind romance and engagement with President Sarkozy, whom she met at a dinner party last November and married just three months later.
"You know it's not so comfortable to sort of be dating when you're like the president of France," she quipped in English.
"Maybe if he was a doctor or lawyer, we would have been engaged a little longer," she added.
