    Merkel says Obama politically and physically fit
    Wed Jul 23, 2008 3:36pm BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel is an admirer of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama -- even though she has not yet met him in person.

    Asked at a news conference on Wednesday what she thought of Obama, Merkel responded: "I would say that he is well-equipped -- physically, mentally and politically."

    Obama is due to meet with Merkel for about an hour on Thursday morning and will later give a speech on transatlantic relations at the "Victory Column" in Berlin's Tiergarten park.

    Merkel objected to initial plans by the Obama campaign to hold the speech at the Brandenburg Gate. His appearance is expected to draw tens of thousands of Germans, who polls show prefer him to his Republican challenger John McCain.

    Since coming to power in 2005, Merkel has repaired relations with Washington damaged when her predecessor Gerhard Schroeder clashed with U.S. President George W. Bush over the Iraq war.

    Bush was famously caught on camera at a G8 meeting in 2006 giving Merkel a quick backrub and the chancellor was asked on Wednesday whether she expected more massages from Bush's successor -- whether it's McCain or Obama.

    "That's not really up to me," she joked. "But I wouldn't resist."

    Merkel said she would not be in Berlin for Obama's hotly anticipated speech, but added: "Maybe I'll turn on the television."

    Still waiting to see where she said she would prefer it, I mean I saw that video, she could have had gas, or maybe she had to take a crap. You are assuming she would prefer a massage from Obama, because she never said that. :lol::lol:
