Right now you’re wishing you had someone like Angela Merkel, a leader who runs our country without any showmanship. She doesn’t play golf, has no private foundation, the only known luxury she allows herself is a summer house in eastern Germany.
But I have to warn you, you’d probably be bored to death.
We are the country of super trade-offs. We’re a bit like our favorite TV crime series “Tatort.” At times without humor, at times without suspense, but unfailingly on air every Sunday evening, 45 years long.
