... Bibi would have won.

I wasn't really surprised by Bibi's failure to win big. Honestly, how many people like raw, unflavored tofu? How much satisfaction does one get from eating the bagel's hole? Bibi ran circles rather than giving the public solutions to our many problems.

Avigdor Lieberman read the polls correctly. The people want the Right answers, not diplomatic plattitudes. The Israeli media electioneered consistently for Tsippi, trying to show her as fun, human and the person "everyone" really wanted. So the confirmed conformists voted for her instead of putting the Retirees back to work in the Knesset.

Many of us who wanted straight, clear answers and principles voted for Ichud Le'umi.

Of course, it didn't get the publicity, nor have a leader with the power and charisma of Lieberman.

Election Day was stormy.

We braved the weather and voted, thankful for every drop of rain.

Now we must pray that those elected will be gifted with wisdom, G-d willing.
