    Marshal didn't want to just wait he was dead set against the idea of creating a jewish state ever because he thought it was unfair and he told Trueman how he felt straight out. Which public were going to be consulted on Marshals idea in 1948, the jews ? They were not interested in politics they wanted their state and they didn't give a dam about what Marshal or anybody else thought. Ben Gurion and his people knew the political arguments and the options so everybody knew what they were getting into. As for the idea of Bibi ditching the right wing in his coalition in favor of Livni there would be open rebellion in Likud and they would destroy Bibi, his future in Lukud would be over because he would be seen as a traitor by getting rid of all his right wing partners. Assuming that his own party didn't destroy him if he went with Labour & Kadima only he would become the junior partner in a left wing coalition. The two left wing parties would gang up on him and Livni would be PM in all but title. If Bibi wants to avoid this he would have to get rid of Labour and if he got rid of Labour he would have to invite either Shas or Yisrael Beitanu into the coalition if he was going to have a working majority. Remember wherever you go in the world politicians and idealists are not the same thing and all politicians put their political ideals and personal careers first. You might be an idealist but don't expect Bibi or any other politician in the world to be that way. Bibi's only real options are keep things the way they are now, if she is willing to put her ego asside invite Livni, ditch Barak and keep his most senior right wing partners or hold an election and see what the result of that will be. So for now Bibi is not going to rock the boat.
