I read your post in response to my opinion that you are stuck in the cow pasture with Peretz, as he offers nothing new. You ignored the substance of my comments and proceeded to do p.r. for Peretz, rather than produce a real argument that Peretz had a new voice and ideas that we have never heard from Labor. You sound like Clinton's Carville. Frankly, Peres has much more sophisticated views and experience than Peretz, and it seems to me if the background issue is raised, that most Sephardi Israelis place a greater value of security issues than an ashkenazi "liberal" in Savyon. Who put Begin in office after all? Labor needs younger people who are independent of the old socialist institutions to run for office who understand the reality of the conflict with the Palestinians and the need to move Israel into a market economy. Peretz to me is an old line choice who reflects the past, not the future.
