    A rehash of a Barak political leading role does not seem neither to be promising nor to be helpful. His political past has shown him not be able to fulfill a real leader position be it party, government or ministerial job as Harel Shavit declared in his articles. His general public support also doesn?t justify a recommendation. Ayalon still a ?promising candidate? but unfortunately a person whose grown up life so far was spent in army or military like position only. Amir Peretz/ role is on the personal political level a highly unsatisfactory. After having accepted Olmert?s spin of becoming Minister of Defense instead of trying to use his coalition power on the eco sociological politic. A present change of his Defense Ministry appointment should be made only in complete linkage with the resignation of Chief of Staff Halutz and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. This would cause general Knesset election. The latest public polls resulted in 85 % thinking Israel?s government being corrupt are more than tale telling especially as we seem to be at the outset of new real investigation of Israel?s PM, Israel?s Min of Finance, the Winograd Commission?s report awaited together with a possible wider scale of a fact finding report by the State Comptroller are not expected to rebuild confidence in this government. Here is no further place left for any ?saving? political maneuver of the present government
