Rainer Brüderle: Höpe

After the their unsettling - if surprisingly healthy - showing last night, the FDP have announced their election campaign head: Rainer Brüderle. 

A break from the younger generation of FDP politicians, a generation which drained the party of almost all its credibility, Brüderle is a member of the old guard. 

A break from the past by returning to it.

His greatest weakness could be his greatest asset: he talks with a comically strong accent. His willingness to confront this and take the barbs with humour will bring a much-needed injection of humanity to the FDP's leadership.

Let's face it - he's their only höpe.
