The three parties worked their way through arduous negotiations on policy issues that concluded with a 17-hour overnight session last night in order to hammer out the final details that will make a new German coalition government possible. The agreement still requires approval by party delegates, which especially in the case of the SPD is uncertain. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images,)
