Olmert days are numbered but I do not think that Barak or Netanyahu are better. Remember Barak was not able to close the deal with the Palestinians and things went downhill since. What Israel needs is another Rabin.
Former Israeli prime minister, Ehud Barak, seems to have won the Israeli Labor party leadership over Ami Ayalon, a former internal security chief, in a close contest. The narrow victory forecast for Barak in all three exit polls was within the margin of error and the final outcome of the contest will not be apparent until the first real results trickle in from around midnight local time (2100 GMT).
Can Barak defeat Netanyahu for the prime minister's seat?
According to several Israeli analysts, the slogan in Israel: "whoever wins, Olmert looses." Is this true?
