Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From watching German TV Greece wasn´t a "major" issue. At least if election analysts are right.

They say it was a combination of local issues (education, unemployment, CDU scandals) plus general dissatisfaction with the (federal) Merkel government.
Here they cite the FDP problems (Westerwelle and "Roman decadence", donations from hotel owners and tax cuts for hotels) and the feeling that Merkel doesn´t seem to be in control of the coalition government.
Greece probably played a role when coupled with the "not in control" feeling.
