The regional election success for the opposition Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in North Rhine-Westphalia could be a springboard for party leader Angela Merkel.
Ms Merkel is likely to be the candidate to challenge German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder in Germany's next general election, which means she may have a good chance of becoming the country's first female chancellor.

Angela Merkel is a fascinating lady. She is a conservative but supports some liberal efforts like gay marriage and abortion.
