    Olmert's dilemma about his coalition partners is an illustration of what I meant. Hard enough being the PM of any country but to be the PM of Israel you need to be a superman. Poor Olmert is just someone who learned to be a good second in command and a very good manager. It should be enough but not for someone who has to field the well meaning or otherwise gestures of all the world, run wars in the most sensitive and scrutinised country in the world, manage a government and make peace with people who don't want you around. None of the big talkers and arm-chair generals here on the talkback could come within a thousand miles of doing this job competantly. And no, I didn't vote for Olmert and never would. But I do see the difficulty of his position and I know what human limitations are.
