. i think that one of the reasons was that he got george bush on his side at the time. and george bush being america had more to say than margaret thatcher. but that said, i think what's left without doubt, we have now the best germany that's ever been as a result of helmut kohl. and arguably the best europe. so those are two big things that helmut kohl has done. but then we come to the fine detail and the situation now. and a lot of things have gone wrong. but basically i think is a starting point, we have those two things. melinda: those two things were deeply linked in the mind of helmut kohl himself. we have a quote from him that pretty much sums up the words that he used to convince the skeptics when it came to german unification. >> let us be good neighbors and dependable partners. let us remain german europeans and european germans. then we'll have good prospects for a future in peace and freedom. melinda: alan posner, you said in your opening statement that chancellor kohl squandered -- sorry. you said that chancellor merkel squandered kohl's legacy. she was in fact mentor
