many of the appointments in the munkicpailites are based on partisan considerations, so iit is within bounds to assume the opnions of the Mr. Cohen are likelty the opinions of the people lwho gave him his job. The problem is that being where he is, he can influence the students because he is the principal. In the States, there is a Hatch Act, that forbids cilvill servants from engagng in political activity. Mr. Cohen, by definition is a civil servant. Mr Cohen was taken to task for stating his opinions "in a public forum". Were he to hold a "Chug Bayit" and invite people to discuss his feelings, that would be his provate matter, but to trash a candidate, and praise another, no matter who they were would be dirty pool anyway. Seems to me when the Left or the Right speak out negatively towards its opponents it's bad politics and hardly "democratic". The wise pol states their opinion without regard to the oppositon. I, at least, vote "for" the candidate of my choice, not because I oppose some other person. Funny too, in some cases to restate, or, in misquote your oppostion could bring the person you want to persuade to thei side in when the on learns what the opposition really believes.
