Olmert Announces He’ll Step Down

You have no doubt heard that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, embattled in a corruption investigation and still taking heat from the 2006 Lebanon War, announced he will step down yesterday.

What do you think? Is this a good thing for Israel? Who should take Olmert’s place? The leading replacement candidates are Kadima’s own Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, as well as Defense Minister Ehud Barak (Labor) and Benyamin Netanyahu (Likud).

Who will step in?

(Stay tuned. We are working on republishing our profile of Olmert from the June 2006 issue.)

  1. I think what you said made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you typed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid, but what if
    you added a post title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Olmert Announces Hell Step Down | InTheMoment is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page
    and see how they create post headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about
    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
