  3. Don Beyer:

    I don't know how you run for governor on what's happening in the US Congress, i think having a president with 42 % popularity and a Congress that seems to have a hard time governing in the short run is not helpful, but I don't think that determined the outcome of the election.

  5. Daniel Roth:

    With regards to the job itself, it looks like Müller will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor at UNIDO. China’s Li Yong continued funding Iran projects every single year during his eight-year term and clearly enjoyed good relations with Tehran, since Germany nominated him as its candidate, Müller has given no indication that he is concerned about dangerous tech getting into Iranian hands via UNIDO. Nor has he hinted that the existing programs will be reviewed. Bearing in mind Germany’s poor record when it comes to selling dual-use tech to rogue regimes, one would hope that Müller – as a senior German minister – would be especially determined to resolve these problems.
