Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

From the TMI File

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Barack Obama:

BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel is an admirer of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama — even though she has not yet met him in person.

Asked at a news conference on Wednesday what she thought of Obama, Merkel responded: “I would say that he is well-equipped — physically(!!), mentally and politically.”

Now we know why she was so opposed to Obama speaking at Brandenburg Gate: She is playing hard to get! But it gets better:

Bush was famously caught on camera at a G8 meeting in 2006 giving Merkel a quick backrub and the chancellor was asked on Wednesday whether she expected more massages from Bush’s successor — whether it’s McCain or Obama.

“That’s not really up to me,” she joked. “But I wouldn’t resist.”

Uh, ew?

Merkel likes massages after all, apparently
