Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The odds of the Linke joining the CDU to vote them down would seem remote...

Why? They could bet on new elections, or a better offer in another round of coalition talks.

One of the Left Party's designated double-head declared an hour ago that he doesn't support the minority government option, he wants government responsibility for his party. The SPD won't escape its identity crisis, it seems.

A "grand coalition" would surely be suicidal for the SPD.

Unfortunately, being suicidal was the normal mode for the SPD over the past five years...

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
