LEIPZIG, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 14:  A security guard closes a curtain behind which leading party members were arriving at the federal party convention of the German Social Democrats (SPD) on November 14, 2013 in Leipzig, Germany. The SPD is currently involved in tedious negotiations with the German Christian Democrats (CDU) in an effort to create a new German government, though so far the two parties are finding little common ground.
