We have moved from the anxiety of "too much" Germany to "less" Germany, which would also mean "less Europe."

However, this is not the case with Merkel herself. As the first woman to lead Germany, she has continued to demonstrate her lucidity, dignity, and skills as a moderator, as well as her sense of humor. Her reputation has spread worldwide.
