The decision by Ehud Barak to retain his Cabinet seat, is couched in terms that would make it appear he is doing it for partiotic purposes.The peace process, the Dimona attack , the rockets in Sderot etc.This would be fine, if we somehow didn't know that he is afraid to face the voters,and is hoping to build up his image in the polling against Bibi.When he twice made his promise to resign after Winograd,conditions on the ground were the SAME!

My thoughts are,that if McCain (as looks likely) wins the nomination ,he will need a real Conservative as V.P. nominee.I previously mentioned Newt.Huckabee and Gov. Charlie Crist of Fla, who traveled to N.J. yesterday with McCain would be good choices.
Note: Arab children in Gaza celebrating the suicide bomber attack in Dimona, by handing out candy to motorists .
Yesterday Sean Hannity on his program had Frank Luntz ,the pollster interviewing a group of Democratic voters.Sean had Luntz ask the group of about 25 people ," could you name a single Obama accomplishment? NOT A SINGLE RESPONSE!
