A good article on the Israeli elections can be found here. As for my gut feelings, normally I hate to be proven wrong, but I really wil not mind having to admit on Wednesday morning that my pessimism was ill-founded and that I was wrong to somehow believe that the opinion polls which for months have predicted 35+ seats for Kadimah, 15-20 for Labor and 20- for Likud did not reflect the true spirit of the Israeli voters. Isn't it ironic that I had feelings of yearning when I saw Ariel Sharon in a Kadimah election spot yesterday evening, or that I would love to see Ehud Olmert as our next Prime Minister ( not that I am a Kadimah voter ) ? Nothing is more fickle than man, especially when that man lives in a reality show that is called Israel.
