Germany's Social Democrats debate coalition possibility

Merkel Germany doesn’t support Trump on Jerusalem

"We don't have to govern at any price, but we also shouldn't want not to govern at any price", he said.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives are hoping to form a coalition with the SPD after failing to get a three-way coalition with the liberal Free Democrats and Greens off the ground. Merkel's talks with two smaller parties collapsed last month, prompting a change of course by Social Democrat leaders - who after a disastrous election defeat in September had previously insisted they would go into opposition.

Some delegates used their speeches to vent their annoyance with the party leadership opening the door to talks with Merkel, expressing fears that a new "grand coalition" could deal their party an existential blow.

NHL Allows Seattle to Apply for Expansion Team
The NHL Board of Governors, meeting in Florida on Thursday, voted to accept an application for an expansion team in Seattle . Bettman said the process of setting up a team in Seattle would be similar to what happened for Las Vegas, according to K5.

Martin Schulz, 61, the SPD leader, faces a torrid three days at the party conference in Berlin after his U-turn on holding talks with Mrs Merkel, 63. Phasing out coal energy was inevitable, Schulz said, and the next government should focus on creating new opportunities for those now employed in the sector. She said she would concentrate on securing greater cooperation on economic, security, defense and other issues by 2025.

The leader of Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) said on Thursday that the country must find a way to exit brown coal production without hurting coal-producing regions and causing job losses. Schulz, who ran unopposed, won some 82 percent support — short of the unanimous backing he received when first elected in March.
