Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Presumably because Weber is leader of the EPP in the EP and Ursula isn't even an MEP. But the thing is, she doesn't even seem to be a particularly distinguished Defence Minister, so why has she appeared from left field when there are other EPP politicians, like Barnier, with so much more European experience.

I suspect a lot of countries don't want Weidman at the ECB, and appointing a German to Head the commission will prevent that, although conceding the President of the Commission is a high price to pay for blocking Weber. It looks like Merkel is serious about wanting to retire, so who else is there? Peter Altmaier? He's not even a woman...
