Kadima, Kadima - it is a little more complicated

Yesterday I wrote about how Labor might steal the rug from under Kadima and form a coalition itself. But today is a new day, and it looks once again like it's Kadima that's going places. Shas and UTJ, by order of their respective rabbinical leaders, have come out in support of Olmert (why? I haven't seen any explanation), as have the Pensioners and Meretz. Peretz is being criticized from within his own party, for being egotistical and going against the will of his own voters, who never could have meant for him to give a platform to the likes of Shas, UTJ, NU-NRP, and Likud.

(Check out J Post's Analysis: Peretz's day-after syndrome for more.)

I wouldn't bury the thought of a Labor-led government just yet, though. Should Olmert's coalition begin to falter at some point—and that's not unlikely—the Knesset may have to give Peretz another chance, if it wants to save itself from new elections. I just hope that happens before Olmert's planned expulsion and not after.
