Netanyahu offered Livni the foreign minister post and control of the diplomatic situation but she turned him down because she wanted to be PM. Livni put herself over her country knowing that the left faction got destroyed but she still wanted to be PM. She knew if she didn't take the FM post Netanyahu would have to pick Lieberman and be hurt politically and Livni could benefit. She put her own ambitions first. Netanyahu couldn't form a govt with neither lieberman or livni. You need 61 seats to govern and without Lieberman or Livni Netanyahu had no government. What exactly did you want him to do? Did you want him to withdraw and let Olmert stay on as Prime Minister even when he was about to be indicted. Knocking Netanyahu on Lieberman is hiding the fact of the system's problems. It is Israel's system that is the problem not Netanyahu. It isn't like in the U.S where you win and you control your own government. The parliamentary system is different
