Schroeder, Merkel trade jabs on campaign trail - Yahoo! News:
"Schroeder drew loud cheers from a crowd of 5,000 near the Elbe River when he accused Merkel of lacking the strength to stand up for peace if 'powerful world leaders' were to try to pressure Germany into war.
'It's not just enough to have the will, it's a question if she's able to stand up to a powerful partner. She hasn't and that's why she's not capable to lead Germany,' said Schroeder, whose peace stance is popular in the formerly communist east."
