German Vote

I thought John Fund of had some of the clearest analysis of the election in Germany. You'll also want to read Victorino Matus at TWS and Jim Geraghty at NRO. It was Geraghty who came up with what I thought was the "keeper" line of the day:

Eventually someone will form a government, but the negotiations could take weeks. The only time we get these kinds of messes in the American system is when a presidential candidate withdraws his concession, turns around the motorcade, and sends out his spokesman to declare, "our campaign continues." And thankfully, that's rare.
