Taking pot shots at Sharon et al is easy

Trying to explain the inability to rule in Israel won't be. Prior to Sharon, five Israeli PMs went down in flames: Shamir (lost an election), Rabin (assassinated), Peres (lost an election), Netanyahu and Barak (the same). Between 1992 and 2002, Israel had six prime ministers, only one of whom managed to be relected after one term - and Sharon's first term was short. That's not good.

One has to wonder if any politician stands any chances of being relected as PM; we may be looking at the common Israeli disgust with politicians here, which always assume the most cynical, is not rational and is often irrational.
