    Barak said that Olmert should resign, but that if Barak wins the Labor primary in a couple of weeks, he'll be happy to sit as Defense Minister in a "temporary" Olmert government.

    The nightly news shows are presenting it as the end of Barak's candidacy.

        almost everyone here hates Netanyahu, and yet right now, he's the only one not trying to either cling to, or grab for, power.  Even Livni lost all her points when she made up with Olmert one day after saying he should quit.

          the last week... I forgot it's almost election time and have been on my usual bi-weekly reading schedule.  I didn't see either person make up with Olmert, just saw both of them cut him off.

          I called this dynamic a year ago, I said "Well everyone hates Olmert but they're comfortable and stand to lose their seats (Kadima and Pensioners especially) if we go to elections... so I bet it's a long slow road to no confidence"

          big time .. he scares the crap out of me, with his MIT parsed English.

          Bibi 'not grabbing for power' is like describing George W Bush as 'not stupid'.
