    Anyone have any thoughts? Looks like the outcome will probably be another grand coalition.

    That's not true. The withholding changes reflect the Making Work Pay tax credit.

    not at all, not at all, this was a demerol-campaign, designed not to hurt anyone, extremely boring.

    but even then they managed to make grand promises (this is your obama angle) they could not keep.

    btw, socialism is not dead, it just stinks a little, and is divided into at least 3 factions, conservatism is more like a monolithic block of old assholes, hahaha, ok there are some young assholes too. the winner were the biggest ass clowns, you would maybe call them classic liberals, the FDP. they will be the junior partner of the conservative CDU, and will be cannibalized like every junior partner in a coalition, bon appetit.

    THAT was my point ;)

    and besides, most of the political parties in Germany are to the left of the DNC here
