The Show Must Go On

According to German Foreign Minister Steinmeier in yesterday's Berliner Morgenpost,
The constitutional treaty is much more alive than you may think. The constitution contains important new arrangements that will better equip the EU to tackle the tasks of the future and will also make it more democratic and transparent. The deliberations on the Berlin Declaration have shown that the will to renew the EU exists. That makes me confident that we will overcome the problems ahead and will preserve the substance of the constitutional treaty.

But as we believe to be the case, the Heads of Government will not sign the declaration on Sunday, because as has been noted before they cannot get everyone to agree. So it seems the Constitution lives in their minds. It all rather reminds me of Sixth Sense, "I see dead people".
