Nothing new

Same old same old...

Bibi's still reaching out to the left for a "unity government", the left is still insisting that the only way they'll join him is if Likud severs ties with parties on the right and embrace concessions to the arabs, and Bibi is still stuck in the middle, crippled by indecision.

Early today, Lieberman and his Yisrael Beitenu party signed on to join the Likud government coalition with "conditions", meaning if Tzippi were to come hither to Bibi's wooing all prior deals and agreements are void and she gets what she wants.

Yawn...expect this dance to continue until the April deadline, when Bibi must present a coalition with a mandate of at least 61 seats or forfeit his opportunity to become Prime Minister. In the end, Bibi will likely have to swallow the slimmer 65 seat right-leaning majority instead of his dream unity leftist government that would add up to at least 83 seats.

Nothing new under the sun.
