Not Again

According to the most recent count, Kadima received 28 seats, followed by Labor's 20, Shas' 13, Yisrael Beitenu's 12 and Likud's 11. Kadima's victory was more pyrrhic than anything else because recent polls had them closer to 35. Now, with only 28, they'll need to make serious concessions to minority parties in order to form a semi-stable coalition. Does anyone doubt that this government will fall, just like every other government in Israel's history (save Begin's first)?

Olmert wants final borders by 2010. Will his government be around by then? Will his party be around then?

I'm looking forward to new elections next year, as always.
