The Christian Democrats, the more conservative and pro-American of the two largest German political parties, fell short of the anticipated 40%+ they were expected to get, but this puts Angela Merkel in as the new Chancellor.
Without a majority, Merkel may be forced as chancellor into a coalition with the Social Democrats, probably without Schroeder.Looks like one of the Axis of Weasels has been shown the door. Who's next?
It's now reported as too close to call with both Schroeder and Merkel claiming victory. Could be be counting "hanging chads" in Dusseldorf?
