    Shelly was considered the least trustworthy of all the party leaders at the last election. She had no policy she just ranted on about social justice but didn't say what social justice meant. When Peretz was leader she criticised his decision to take the defense ministry and rather than pushing for finance. Bibi offered her finance and for Labor to join the coalition rather than Lapid but she turned it down on the grounds she preferred to be leader of the opposition. Then of course later this woman who turned down criticised Lapid for his budget. If Herzog is smart he will stay out the coalition and try and build up a good image for himself because if he is outside the coalition there is less to criticise on election day because he has kept a low profile for a long time now. A good tactic for him will rather than attack Bibi try and court Livni & Lapid voters because alot of them are former Labor voters so get back the faithful. He is a fresh face not a hard line socialist like Shelly & Peretz or a former PM like Barak who ended up as Bibis right hand man until he quit the party to form his own so courting former Labor voters would be much more effective than joining the government or attacking Bibi.
