    Leader of the Left Coalition party Alexis Tsipras enters Greek President's Karolos Papoulias office in Athens May 8, 2012. The final collapse of talks to forge a new Greek government triggered repeat elections and fears of a chaotic exit from the euro zone. But it is the manner of that collapse, the acrimony and rancor cited by Karolos Papoulias, that bodes ill for efforts after June polls to pull Greece back from the brink. Picture taken May 8, 2012.
