    Peretz is not "no better" than Shaul Mofaz and Ben-Elizer - he is better, period. All of his instincts and ideas have been good ones. His bad moves are ones he was bullied into. Peretz offered more strategic sensitivity and less vaccous short-term military urge-gratification. He hasn't been as *much* better as Gideon Levy expected, but that isn't his fault. Peretz main weakness is that he hasn't been ruthless enough with his internal enemies. Quite frankly, Labor is being gutted by traitors who want to be Likudniks at heart. Peretz should have been tough enough to utterly destroy the complainers in his camp, and ruthless about blaming the failed war on Olmert and the IDF. The Labor Party systematically eats the most talented of its young. Look what happened to Avrham Mitzna. The same thing to Peretz. The party is a dead organ, and Peretz should leave it.
