Huge quote of the day from Chancellor Merkel about Obama.
I would say that he is well-equipped physically, mentally and politically (for the presidency.
- Angela Merkel, Germany's chancellor, today.

She also added that she wouldnt resist a Bush-style back rub from the Land of Lincolner.

4. OMFG!!!! She actually DID say that!!!
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 03:04 PM by IanDB1
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."
