Anyone watched the German election? What's your opionion about it?
I'm absolutely shocked about the result. I can't believe that SPD got that much votes. Especially after Mr. Schroeder being that impolite and rude in TV right after the elections at the traditonal talk (read a translated version of the SPIEGEL article here).
In my opinion CDU should have made it. Then they were to group up with only FDP which makes a reasonable coalition. Now there are only two options left:
- Big Coalition: CDU/CSU + SPD with FDP, Grüne and Linke in opposition
- Black Traffic Light / Jamaica Coalition: CDU/CSU + FDP + Grüne with SPD and Linke in opposition
I prefer the second one. What do you think? I'm interested in how the Germans here and also the people from all over the world think about the election.
