    Poor Lapid he isn't going to get the foreign ministry which is the most glamerous ministry after the PM and the foreign ministry has very often been a stepping stone to the top job. Lapid will probably go with the finance ministry because if he who controls the money has alot of power and influence. Finance and defense are jobs that should not be given to politicians and should instead go to professionals. Lapid has no qualifications to be finance minister, all the man has ever done in his life is journalism and tv presenting so he doesn't belong in finance. Peretz had no military exprience, he got the defense job and he was a disaster.If we were going to give finance to an MK now they give it to Bennet who is a self made mllionare and understands about investment and making money. Give Lapid interior ministry best place to put him if he plans to wage a crusade against religion.

    from the article: Lapid likely to be Israel's next finance minister, Bennett to take trade portfolio, sources say

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
