    The elections have now been announced and so far Olmert doesn't have a party to lead. He has not formed his own party ( yet ) and he doesn't have time to actually create a new party before the election. Kadima do want him back but they have already held their primaries so they can't ditch Mofaz for Olmert. He can of course stand stand as an independent but as an independent he isis just 1 man & would have zero influence on any issue. Right now his name is mud in the minds of most Israelis so its doubtful he would even be able to win a seat as an independent. Olmert himself stands for nothing. He wasn't some kind of champion of peace but he was the most unpopular PM in living memory before he was forced to resign by the party than now has such nostalgic memories of the Olmert years. When he was PM he wasn't elected on his merits it was on a Sharon sympathy vote, it was Sharon the people wanted not Olmert. If Olmert stands Bibi and the other party leaders on the left, right and religious will tear him apart. I almost hope Olmert does stand just to see this arrogant crook humiliated Such a humiliation would be a worse punishment than any courts can give and maybe he will realise he is yesterdays news and has no political future then we will have 1 less crook in the Knesset.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
