As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

CDU in Hamburg wins elections
The good thing to say about this election is that this impossible Ronald Barnabas Schill is out. The bad thing is that the CDU who before had worked together with Schill and has made his success possible, now has won the elections alone and Ole von Beust can feel confirmed with his politics.
The SPD candidate Thomas Mirow now wants to resign from politics and get back in his job again. Even when I can understand this, I don't think he's right. Politicians who tried to win an election and disappeared afterwards have been here enough, how about real characters, who also stand thrugh a phase of opposition and have it help them winning profile and get known? Well, seems such folks are no longer modern and wanted.
Anyway, it's not really Mirow's fault to have lost it this time. It's a mix of von Beust being a "nice guy", Hamburg people mistrusting the SPD in Berlin and so also in Hamburg and folks who think, von beust needs a real chance, now, after Schill is gone. So Mirow should not be blamed but also not left out of responsibility for the next years so easily.
