Edmund Stoiber's Bavarian legacy
There is a brilliant, unemotional article in The Economist's (7th Sept edition) Europe section about the German elections. It's relatively short but very informative. They look closer on Stoiber and analyze what he wants and what he might be able to do, looking at his his past achievements in Bavaria. They conclude that "Mr Stoiber might well be prepared to do more than he is at present willing to reveal. But there is nothing in his record to suggest that he would be any more of a radical reformer than Mr Schroder." You need to subscribe or pay-per-view to see the article or use a database like ProQuest. Maybe it'll be free to access by next week when the new print edition comes out. / 16.Sept: Now it's available.
