If you want a left-wing party you vote for one, if you want a centrist party you vote for Kadima, if you want a right-wing party you vote for Likud or one of the smaller. even crazier parties. Why vote for a party whose sole policy is ensuring Barak keeps his ministerial office, perks and limousine? We all know there's plenty of cynicism in politics, but voteres still like to believe a party stands for something more that. Vote Barak! Vote cynicism! isn't a huge crowd-pleaser.
