Three fresh-faced children appear on the TV screen and, to the sound of kiddie piano music, declare that they want Greece to belong to the Greeks.The two parties – one sporting an old Greek symbol closely resembling a swastika as its emblem, the other the Soviet hammer and sickle – are far behind the leaders in Sunday's election. Next down the list, however, is Golden Dawn, a party with many of its leaders in prison yet drawing as much as 8 percent of the vote.Neither party is likely to be considered as a coalition partner by the eventual winners, particularly Golden Dawn. But if, as some in Europe would like to see, Syriza and New Democracy formed a grand coalition, Golden Dawn could become the official opposition.
