Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I love it when the FT Deutschland explains how politics that lose elections are better than politics that win elections.

I can only hope the CDU and FDP are taking notes!

Merkel will not lead the CDU to anywhere. She will keep it in the centre. Where she is, and she seems quite comfortable there. More importantly, the Germans are comfortable with her being there.

The SPD has to improve its politics considerably, or she'll have another term as Chancellor.

For that, the Hessen elections provide an instructive example.
