Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Zapatero and Merkel neck to neck, it's almost as though Europe favors some sort of social model.

Hmmm, Zapatero is a Socialist party leader with programme which is leftist in a significant part, Merkel had a neoliberal programme which she was forced to throw out.

But Merkel, hasn't been able to attack the social state. So in either case supporting the leader doesn't entail attacking the social state.
