German Opposition Meets With Bush

[Media Source*]

In a significant move for US-German relations, a senior German politician from the conservative opposition was invited to the White House on Thursday to meet president George W. Bush.

Wolfgang Schauble, the foreign policy expert in Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Party (CDU), expected to win the general elections next month, held an unscheduled 45-minute meeting with the US leader.

This comes as good news as Germany and the United States have not enjoyed the best of relations ever since the current chancellor Gerhard Schroder called the Iraqi liberation an "adventure." Schauble is expected to win in the general elections next month (along with his party) and although he is on a "fence mending mission" across the ocean, he is making it clear that Germany's stance regarding Iraq is no troops.

The head of the Christian Democratic Party, Mrs. Angela Merkel is challenging the current chancellor Schroder for his seat. Elections will be held on September 18th, and some expect Germany to elect it's first female chancellor, and a conservative at that.

Although any religious figure would probably appear conservative in Europe, Merkel holds more towards the middle ground ideologically, although she seems to be a fiscal conservative, more in tune with "Governator" Arnold or Rudolf Giuliani. Regardless of the case, her election should help set Germany on a new path economically, as well as ease the ties between Berlin and Washington.
