Angela Merkel Set To Be Chancellor

All indications are that Angela Merkel has hammered out a deal with opposing parties in order to become Germany's first female chancellor, according to this MSNBC article. Ol' BC finds this somewhat interesting as Merkel has expressed desires to improve German - U.S. relations. This in a direct contradiction to former Chancellor Schroeder. What could make things difficult is Merkel's deal allows Schroeder's party to hold a majority of the Cabinet posts. Stay tuned as this could be a really good turn of events....or it could be a major mess due to Cabinet politics.

Just a thought.
