Was the Weimar Republic doomed from the start?

When Germany was clearly losing the First World War, the German Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated. In November 1918, the Government of Germany was left in the hands of the new Chancellor, Friedrich Ebert. Ebert and his colleagues drew up a new democratic constitution for Germany and in the summer of 1919, he was elected the first President of the new Weimar Republic.
