Merkel Wins Plurality - Now What?

It appears from Germany's election that there is a good percentage of the German population that is not anti-American, or at least not to the degree portrayed. This article sheds some light on the situation.

Conservative leader Angela Merkel and the chairman of Chancellor Gerhard
Schroeder's Social Democrats said Monday they both had initiated contacts with
potential coalition partners as they wrestled over what government will emerge
from Germany's inconclusive parliamentary election.

This could get interesting. No doubt U.S. - Germany relations would improve if somehow Merkel can come out on top. Ol' BC has the odds at even money.

Just a thought.
