What does a political coward do if he desires to be a national leader? He deals with followers and opponents by misleading them, not by getting into confrontations. An outstanding example for Netanyahu's M.O: He ran for the 2009 elections on a platform of "No Palestinian State, only Autonomy". some 4 months after the elections Yahoo gave a speech accepting the two-states solution. Obviously, it was clear to him even before the elections that this policy was necessary, but he preferred to deceive his party and the public in order to win the elections. COST: Yahoo could not admit his fakery right away and therefore lost Kadima as a coalition partner. He had to form a hardline coalition which makes it harder to follow the new policy (which was never even brought before the Cabinet, Kneset, and Likud, for formal discussion).
