Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I told you here that angst-driven Germans will agree to a grand coalition. From the English site of "Der Spiegel".

+++ Germans Want a Grand Coalition +++

(10:40 p.m.) Forty-two percent of Germans believe that a grand coalition between left and right -- the SPD and the CDU -- would be "best for Germany". That's according to the results of a poll conducted by ARD. Another 20 percent favor a so-called "Jamaica Coalition," consisting of the (black) CDU, (yellow, business-friendly) FDP, and the Green Party. Eighteen percent are in favor of a so-called "stoplight coalition" of the (red) SPD, (yellow) FDP, and Greens.
