What the world forgets about Angela Merkel

Two years ago, I and millions around the world were shocked to learn that after a long stint in office that had begun when most of today’s world leaders were minor regional officials or television hosts, Angela Merkel would not seek a fifth term as chancellor of Germany. Now perhaps just as many of us have a hard time believing that she really intends not to run again next year, despite her recent assurances to the contrary.

How could she actually go? Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, Merkel’s political heir, has made a hash of leading the Christian Democratic Party, which is now seeking a new chair; despite being considered the leading candidate as recently as 2019, Kramp-Karrenbauer now says that she will not seek the chancellorship herself.
