How much can a candidate of the SPD expect of their own party? Why Franziska Giffey and Raed Saleh dare more than Olaf Scholz.
You could call it a social democratic prize question: What doand have in common? All three want to become something in the SPD and want to win elections. With their stories and their convictions, all three provoke the majority in their party, which for years has committed itself to an increasingly left-wing course - in the federal government as well as in Berlin.
The Story Behind Every Song on Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory’: 20th Anniversary Track-By-Track
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn dive deep into the diamond-selling classic ‘Hybrid Theory,’ sharing how smashes like “In The End,” “Crawling” and “One Step Closer” came together in the studio.“It was a bizarre, but very special, moment in time.” That’s how Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda describes the release of the band’s seminal debut, Hybrid Theory, one of the best-selling rock albums of all time.
The similarities stop when it comes to action. Giffey and her designated co-chairman Saleh have put out a program in the Tagesspiegel interview that makes the party left cry in Berlin. You took a position before the state party conference at the end of the month and want to fight. Chancellor candidate Scholz, on the other hand, avoids provocations from his comrades and seeks solidarity with party leaders Saskia Esken and Norbert Walter-Borjans, who beat him in the membership decision a year ago.
Giffey and Saleh are targeting the middle with clear announcements, distance themselves to some extent from the previous red-red-green government policy, want a business-friendly course, do not ban the car, and the rent cap should not be extended. When it comes to internal security and the enforcement of rules, Giffey has announced tough crackdown on left-wing extremists. The Berlin political scientist Thorsten Faas calls this a “clear shift in emphasis”. With a view to the parliamentary elections in 2021, Giffey wants to strategically “position himself differently and be more selective”, especially vis-à-vis the Greens and their milieu.
Ranking the Falcons' best Dan Quinn replacement candidates if Atlanta fires head coach
Dan Quinn's seat is only getting hotter as the Falcons continue to blow leads and lose games. Here are the eight best candidates to replace him if Atlanta fires its head coach.Quinn took over for Mike Smith, who went 66-46 with four playoff trips over seven seasons. Now in his sixth season, Quinn is 43-41 with one NFC South title and one wild-card berth.
This course is not without risk. Because strong groups in the Berlin SPD want Giffey and Saleh as chairmen, but they only want their names, not their program.

Can Olaf Scholz play to his strengths if he adapts?
Some Social Democrats think that Scholz too could only become a convincingif he expected something from his own party. So far, his candidacy has not given the SPD any boost. Local politicians and long-time members of the Bundestag are concerned. You sometimes have the feeling "that the different wings in the group for factual or personnel decisions are more important than relevant considerations," complained for example the MEP Dagmar Freitag.

From the profile with which Scholz in Hamburg won elections, is little to see at the moment, does he have enough legroom? There he stood not only for economic friendliness, but also for a tough course in the field of internal security, which also included the use of emetics by drug dealers and deportations. At the top of the Federal SPD, the issue of internal security is tended to be handled with sharp fingers. After Scholz negotiated more spying powers for secret services with the Union on Tuesday, for example when accessing online chat messages, he did not praise himself, Union faction vice Thorsten Frei did for him: “Olaf Scholz has now prevailed against the left wing of the SPD ".
The case shows: Scholz must always be careful not to provoke his own left camp. The Vice Chancellor and candidate for Chancellor will therefore take a very close look at how far Giffey and Saleh are now getting in Berlin with their provocatively clear program in their party - and whether it can also be a blueprint for him.
