Surely they'd be better off doing it all now? Voters will have forgotten by 2013?

I suspect it's  the complex of regional and federal elections from now to 2013: lose too many of the smaller ones and Merkel will be gone.

Do voters care much? She may be postponing the problem so that her successor has to deal with it. If she gets reelected, then they can start talking about 2017 being the key date....
