    Olmert represents nothing, other than opportunism and the lack of vision and talent in the statesmanship area. It would have been best if Labor could possibly move into the position of idea-leader in an idea-less Kadimah coalition. Unfortunately, Olmert has a rightwing background, and wouldn't let them. What is Labor doing now in the coalition? Of course, they should quit it in a hurry. (But this wouldn't happen until Peretz is deposed. The man wants more time to rehabilitate himself as Defense Minister. Wouldn't happen, because he lacks basic understanding.) The Right has a majority today. Let them rule, and do whatever they think is right in the foreign area. My assumption is they will succeed in the same way that Putin succeeds in Chechnya. The Israeli public needs to see a failure in order to move to the alternative. Let the Right rule today, let them fail, and let there be an informed change by the public.
