Well the people of France have voted, and the result is a setback for the EUcrats. Most amusing is the quote from Valery Giscard d'Estaing to the effect that countries that reject the treaty will be asked to vote again. This can of course be easily summarized as "the people will continue to vote until they reach the correct result!"
But let's not get too excited in congratulating the French on their rejection of the bureaucratic nightmare that is the EU Constitution. It seems that most of the no votes were cast as a protest against the laughably weak attempts to barely reform the socialist markets of Europe.
Any new version of the EU Constitution that is palatable to the French should prove doubly onerous to those who wish to see real economic reform and open markets.
