The buck, and the public's judgment cannot and must not stop at the door of the despicable Katzav. He was "elected" president, not on his qualities or virtues, but by a political enforced by the majority party in the Knesset. And since 'political dealing" is EVERYTHING in that despicable place, no one cared about Katzav's well-known "sexual C.V." - he was the right party hack in the right place. THIS system that must be stopped - the institution of the Presidency - a symbolic figure who represents the whole state - must be elevated above and divorced from the partisan politics of our Knesset.
