Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the SPD can't fight the next elections on personality
As I've tried to show, it's not a promising way to win, but I also don't think they can fight successfully on policy issues without blowing up the coalition. They can't really go to the left, so they are stuck in mostly the same positions the CDU has.
At the moment, I'm watching the book presentation of Platzeck, Steinbrück and Steinmeier (the "Schröder reforms wing"). More here.
