    At the last elections we elected the 'best' of a very bad lot.They not surprisingly failed miserably. The Pensioners Party's success was a protest vote, but they too have proved to be a useless bunch of mediocrity. All the other options have already failed, be it Bibi, Barak or Livni,. Her showing in the War was pathethetic, and showed no leadership whatsoever. So we are all looking for a leader. Yair Lapid should be given the opportunity to attract a completely new set of leaders from outside the cronies infesting our current political scene.To bring in new talent and maybe,like New York's Gulliano, create a new era of political honesty and ability. These are desperate times and we must look outside the existing system to save our state,our democracy and reinstate acceptable values and norms.
