Openly gay Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit said July 9 he would be “delighted” for Barack Obama to speak at the city’s famed Brandenburg Gate.
Although no firm plans have been made, Obama’s campaign inquired about the procedures for such a speech during an upcoming European trip by the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, however, said she doubts it would be appropriate to use the gate as a campaign backdrop.
