Elections in Israel
posted: February 10, 2009
Tsipi Livni made for Maariv in August 2008 before she won the leadership of Kadima positioning herself as the 'Clean Politics' candidate....
 
Today Israel chooses its next prime minister.
Sadly enough there have not being any great leaders in the area for a number of years.  I doubt if Tsipi Livni will be any different, but if the alternative today is between Bibi Netanyahu and Livni, I certainly hope Livni is elected even though the numbers are not on her side right now.
Who knows perhaps with a woman in charge something might change in this crazy part of the world.

...some days later after the election outcome is known...
Its interesting that people are commenting about the results in regards to votes for Right Wing or Left Wing, while for me the results were that more than half of the voters clearly voted for moderate non-sectorial candidates, (Netanyahu, Livni, Barak).
So the results showed there is a clear majority to the sensible moderate center which these three can represent.  If only logic reigned in Israel, that is....

Love it, as always. Yes, another Golda Meir might just work, or at least appear to be a change in direction?

Thanks Drew (and sorry for the delay) I think she better not be another Golda Meir. Well it seems in any case she won't be PM, at least for now...
