The idea of a Likud / Kadima / Labour coalition is about as likely as the idea of a coalition between Yisrael Beitanu and Meretz. Livni has said she won't join any coalition unless she is PM or it is a rotating premiership & Bibi won't go for that. Bibi, Barak & Livni all care about their political careers more than ideology. Meretz might be all ideology but for the big parties its political careers first everything else later. Bibi is no fan of the peace process anyway so why would he risk Likud getting rid of him as leader for an ideology he doesn't support? He also wants to destroy kadima not form a coalition that will save them The mood of the country is leanng to the right & the public doesn't want a centre left government thats not what they voted for. The peace camp & left must accept the people don't want them. Also Obama & his obsession with the peace process is helping turn Israelis away from the left even more because this champion of the left is trying to hurt Israel.
