    “Ingvar Carlsson’s announcement in late 2005”. You mean 1995. Just pointing it out because it might confuse non-Scandinavian readers.

    Question: Do you think a person like Sahlin with her history could have become leader of the social democrats in Denmark? Personally I doubt it.

    Oops – a typo. The Swedish Social Democrats don’t (yet) change their chairmen as often as the German SPD. I’ll get back to the question of a Sahlin-like politician’s chances in another country in a later post.
