    Check the Sefi Rachlevsky op-ed article today and you will see the pattern. Sefi envisions more leftists voters going to poles, while Bradley imagines a myriad of events that might tip the scale. All these are the dreams of technicians, not basic statesmen. Better talk about issues, not new faces. Yes, Abbas has failed miserably in his hopeless UN move (against an assured US veto). He is incompetent, and now has capitulated to Yahoo's demand, no freezing of settlements, gestures qare all he will get. So the Occupation issue will not lead to Leftist victory in the short term. But then there is the social revolution of last summer. Why not look into what needs to be done politically in order for the Capitalist order to be changed into a social-democratic order? The troops are there, they just need to be motivated by a leader. (Oops, where is that motivational leader?)
