Barak knew that he didn't have any hope of ever becoming PM again and so he settled into the job of DM where he was content, he was even Bibi's unofficial number 2 not a man who wanted to take him on. Right now Bibi has no serious challengers to his throne partly because of the alliance with Liberman and if Livni does as is expected form her own party whilst she will take some Likud seats the bulk of them will be from Lapid, Labor and her supporters in Kadima so she has made a left wing victory near impossible by splitting the vote. It is also a good thing because Shelly Y is an inexperienced idealist who has just 6 years as an MK and never once been even a junior minister or even a member of a ruling coalition and Lapid he has never been an MK at all let alone been part of a ruling coalition.In the end it will be Livni and the left wing party she intends to form that will end up as Bibi's greatest ally by splitting the left wing vote so we have 2 smaller leftist parties rather than 1 big party with muscle. Barak can go back to doing what he does best and thats business where he will only receive praise for doing a good job and making himself rich in the process.
