Before the old wise king set out on his last long journey, he had to settle and administer his inheritance.
His favorite son was gifted and had devoted himself to grammar, languages and thinking, so he could be appointed as deputy, which was rather easy to decide.
The second son was younger and also talented, but he had devoted himself more to economics and numbers, and so he was to be appointed.
The youngest was Anna Lena, his little one: She was less clear in her interests, was very good looking, was winning and could also talk, but she was without any experience. Consequently, she was supposed to go on a journey and find the Blue Flower: She could visit the neighboring countries of the kingdom, meet the Ministers and Queens and Kings there, and be allowed to return home as often as she wished.
Very satisfied, Olaf leaned back on his throne and thought contentedly: The coming ten years should be fine, hardly anything can go wrong. Unless the two sons clash and start a serious fight …

But then things changed completely, as if the whole world was upside down …

ANNALENA BAERBOCK

Die Außenministerin genießt ihr Amt

Annalena Baerbock macht ihr Job als Außenministerin sichtlich Spaß. Sie hat wieder ein Stück jener Unerschrockenheit und Unbefangenheit zurückgewonnen, die sie im Wahlkampf verloren hatte.

Doch seitdem die Aufgaben verteilt sind, wirkt Baerbock wieder entspannt und erleichtert. Dabei hilft ihr die neue Umgebung: Anders als die meisten anderen Ministerien arbeitet die diplomatische Maschinerie des Auswärtigen Amtes mit der Regelmäßigkeit eines Herzmuskels – auch ohne politische Führungskraft. Sicher, die Politiker an der Spitze werden gebraucht, um Ideen zu propagieren und Anstöße zu geben, manchmal sogar, um Entscheidungen zu fällen, aber im Wesentlichen läuft der Apparat entlang der Linien, die unter anderem der internationale Konferenzkalender zieht.
