Kadima asks members to pick next Lehman Brothers leader

Slept in and spent a great deal of time this morning playing Momma from a distance so there is very little bloggyness this morning. The thing to watch in the Mid-East is the Kadima primaries being held in Israel. Whoever wins becomes the defacto prime minister and could potentially not have to face the voters for another 2 years. Not exactly what I would call a stellar vision of democracy in action.

Best line in the whole Kadima leadership race came from Likud leader, Binyamin Netanyahu, when asked if he would join the government coalition once Kadima chooses a new leader. (Jerusalem Post)
"I will not join a Kadima-led government that failed at everything. Asking me to join a Kadima-led government is like asking me to join Lehman Brothers."
