Angela Merkel to Become German Chancellor

It seems like there's a contradiction here:
"Merkel would have to give most of the seats in the new Cabinet to Schroeder's Social Democrats as the price of governing, including top jobs such as foreign minister.

Merkel also said good relations with the United States — another possible sticking point with Schroeder's party — would be a priority.

'I am convinced that good trans-Atlantic relations are an important task and that they are in Germany's interests,' she said."

I won't pretend that I understand German politics.
