    Not so stupid for Livni. I imagine that her price for joining this coalition will be the vice premiership and so when Peres pops his clogs she will become the next PM and lead the new leftist party. When Olmert was in charge of Kadima Livni was his number two and when he was forced to step down Livni inherited his crown and the only reason we had an election was because Shas didn't want a join a coalition led by her so she couldn't get the numbers she needed. With Peres its the same tactic all over of getting elected thanks to somebody else then take over and become the next queen. Livni wouldn't want Peres to stand unless she thought she could benefit from it and she probably is hoping he will die not long after he appoints her to be VP. Israeli politics really is a cutthroat business with everybody stabbing everybody else in the back and using dirty tactics for personal ambition.
