Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has won the Kadima primary to replace Ehud Olmert as prime minister, but the Jerusalem Post reports that she will likely have trouble forming a government, meaning elections early next year, which would be a good thing. In my view, Livni is making a huge mistake by placing too much faith in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas — who, even if earnest, has no power to implement any peace agreement. Before any such blunder is made, Israelis should at least have a say in the form of national elections.
