Livni is the best choice.

Why? Because she’s the only who has yet to fail miserably. Melamad explains:

The fact that Livni is a woman does not guarantee that she will excel in leading this nation. Her two rivals are men. Each one of them has already failed in the past. It is tempting to say that they failed because they are men, but we won’t go there. Tzipi Livni, her voters, and the voters of all other parties deserve a more enlightened and respectful elections discourse. In this discourse, the men have already failed.

Also, I think Kadima has promise as it could evolve into Israel’s first true liberal party, and liberals are radd. And Kadima is one of the few Hebrew words I know. Plus sexism is no bueno:

We must be careful about giving this belittling treatment to a woman running for the most important position in Israel. Whether you vote for Livni or not, let it not be because of her gender. The image of a candidate for the highest office in the land must be based on clear security and economic stances, which have nothing at all to do with sex.

Anyways, congrats, Israel, on having elections that don’t last two years or involve Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber!!
