    George W. Bush has a way with the ladies. You could ask Condi, Karen, Harriet (and of course Laura). Now another fraulein has sauntered onto the scene, looking for extra public (and private) courting. The new interest is Angela Merkel, who is about to be the first woman chancellor of Germany. Foreign women, as any good old boy could tell you, aren't always as easy to impress as one of the locals. They not only play hard to get, but they've got other men eager to fill in their dance cards.

    Frau Merkel follows Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who was downright hostile to the president, encouraging a "special relationship" with Russian President Vladimir Putin while indulging frequent insults aimed at Washington. The new chancellor can change all that. But it won't be easy.
