concentrate on her job as leader of the christian democrat party which he's had since the end of last year but the truth is she stumbled a little bit in that role so this gives her new momentum and also what it will give her is some ministerial experience which she hasn't had up until now she's been a interior minister and then leader of the small german state czar land but she hasn't had a national level cabinet job and she doesn't really need that i think because the playbook sais that she should in time. and especially from the c.d.u. point of view will be the best placed person to succeed angle americal as chancellor and of course a bit of ministerial experience won't harm her at all in that effort
