Economical liberalism calls for the cutback of the state, social democracy calls for the growth of the state in order to improve people's lives.

There were no crisis in the Left until the 1980s that would make them embrace the Third Way, neoliberalism with a human face.

So, to conclude, economic liberalism and social democracy in the same party is clearly contradictory in a mid-20th Century context.

That was OTL, you can't apply OTL here, Erhard was never meant to get to the Chancellorship, but Schumacher was assassinated and he assumed leadership, it caused a crisis in the SPD due to his more liberal stances.

OK, ok. How about Erhard is a libertarian socialist? Argues that unions should get more power? Small-government socialism is never looked much at.

I was thinking something along that lines honestly, something more liberal then the standard of the SPD, and the inter party fighting between Erhard's more libertarian socialism and Brandt's Social Democracy causes a rift between the factions of the power, essentially handing the election to Rommel (through the SPD was already unpopular, this would seal Rommel's ultimate victory likely)
 
From the EOI-verse again: one celebrity GG follows another. Tim Horton was appointed by Mazankowski in 1994 to replace the outgoing Peter Gzowski. All federal parties applauded the appointment, though there was some muted criticism of Horton's minimal French language skills.

 
John Lyman Sears is an American politician, labor lawyer, landowner and rancher. He was formerly a U.S. Senator from Saratoga (2125 - 2128) and the 31st Governor of Saratoga (2115 - 2123). He was the Democratic nominee for President in 2120, emerging as the darkhorse compromise candidate at the 2120 Democratic National Convention, as UAW Chair Kwame Baker and U.S. Senator Ben Griffin were deadlocked. Sears became the compromise candidate, though his campaign was lackluster and largely unable to find a coherent message, and he ended up losing to Republican President Janet Gibbs. Sears finished out his term as Governor and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2124. He served until 2128 when he resigned, citing mental health issues (an assassination attempt, a messy divorce with his wife and a string of home burglaries in 2127 left him frazzled). He retired to the Xanadu Commonwealth on Titan where he became a rancher and eventual leader of the Cattlemen's Association of South Xanadu. John Lyman Sears is the son of John Lillard Sears (President of Harvard University) and Melissa Lyman (White House Chief of Staff and U.S. Secretary of State).

I'm liking these infoboxes, they feel like a more realistic take on the future rather than being overly 'futurey' for the safe of it.
 
Here's an interesting Scenario: The Iraq War is less harmful, Al Zawari is killed in 2005, Dean is elected in '04, and Kennedy manages to raise the national Profile enough that a desperate Tony Blair ropes him into a Coalition, though conceding Electoral Reform to the Lib Dems. So now Salmond doesn't get the Premiership, forgoing a lot of the Scottish Independence Movement. I might do 2011 later, should I?
