In the blue corner…

“President Obama? It’s me, Bibi. I thought you’d appreciate a personal call to let you know what happened in the election…”

It was said this was a test of Bibi’s popularity. He won that contest.

It was said the choice was between Left and Right. The Right won that contest.

It was said there was nobody better than Bibi to stand up for Israel in the international arena. That appears to be a widely held opinion.

I didn’t want Bibi to be forming the next government, but the voters have spoken and that is our democracy in action. It remains to be seen, however, what kind of coalition Bibi can assemble. And, it also remains to be sees how long a new coalition can stay in power without appearing like total sell-outs.

The story has just begin a new chapter. It is not yet over.
