    Israel's Livni: Today the people chose Kadima

    She is currently acting-PM, but with this election, she would become PM.

    It's a close election, although Livni is claiming victory. But so does Netanyahu.

    Netanyahu, Livni declare win in Israeli election

    Netanyahu and Lieberman are too much like Bush. They work to make enemies and trouble.

    Do they settle it with tanks?

    Or perhaps with political assassination? Netanyahu has promised continued war until Hamas is destroyed, which is very popular with the right-wing, including the "settlers" that Livni has publicly identified as major obstructions to Israeli-Palestine peace. If she wins out, she'd better not make public appearances.

    I like the idea of a prime minister named "Zippy". Yow!

    Livni has been moving farther and farther to the right over the last few months. I imagine that helped cut into some of BN's demographic.

    Like playing The Price is Right with one other player, it doesn't help to bid any lower than $1 below your opponent.

    Apparently neither Livni, nor her chief rival Netanyahu, received a clear majority, so

    Inconclusive election puts Israel, peace in limbo
