Lapid's Future Is Now - in the Opposition

It's impossible to sit four years alongside Netanyahu, to be his full partner in his policies and then tell the public that the prime minister is terrible and he has to go. It's also impossible to join a coalition for a limited amount of time and then leave it and start denouncing it

Yair Lapid is torn between his contradictory promises to sit in government and to bring about change. If he joins Benjamin Netanyahu, and it doesn't matter in what role, he will keep his first promise and break the second. Lapid will have a hard time changing things from within the government, and he can't build up Yesh Atid as an alternative to Likud and himself as Netanyahu's successor.
