CBC reports that German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder may call early elections because he believes that his Social Democratic government needs a clear mandate from the people to implement economic reforms.
What is this nonsense, Herr Bundeskanzler?
Why can't you just get Deutsche Welle and Der Spiegel to keep telling the German people that they don't want an election? Isn't there a left-leaning Christian Democrat you can buy off with a cabinet post? Why aren't you out there denouncing that scary Angela Merkel's hidden agenda?
