Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was thinking the same thing.  The business press was clearly pushing for Merkel, and -- shockingly -- Germany, after her election, became everybody's favorite country of the Continent, again.  I suppose it's an improvement on the "Old Europe" line (you know, baby steps).

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

I don't know if it's an improvement, but it's very noticeable.

The English-language media and the business/economy pundits have simply stopped bashing Germany. The "new" meme is France, proudly but foolishly attempting to oppose the forward march of the inevitable.
