Ideally, the Likud-Beiteinu led coalition should entail a moderate presentation of the Israeli Government, and of course, the inclusion of MK Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party makes great sense as all these parties support a two-states solution. However, from the standpoint of a broad acceptance of the parameters necessary to sign a peace agreement with the Palestinians and the rest of the Arab World, it's even more ideal to have the inclusion (for the benefit of Israel in keeping Shalom Bayit) religious parties, such as Shas. Now this would present more legitimacy coming from Israel only if PM Netanyahu is convienced that Shas would agree to the parameters based on security and prevention of further lives lost in wars/terror for the Jewish people. That's my take on the issue. So it really doesn't have much to do with U.S. President Obama's interests, but rather Israel's ideological and security situation.
