Wow, this Israeli election sure fizzled out. There was a low voter turn out and nobody--not right, left, or center--got a clear mandate. Shoot, out of 31 political parties, no two combined have a majority in the Knesset which requires 61 seats to form a coalition government. It's going to take three or more parties to get over the top. A question for the Israelis: Why does everybody assume that Kadima will form a coalition with Labor and other left-wing parties? Couldn't Kadima form a coalition with Likud and other right-wing parties just as easily?
