And then came today, and when I got home and turned on the news, it didn't look all that rosy for Bibi.
There's some serious rivalry between the two "home" parties. Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) wants some improvements before letting in Lieberman's israel Beiteinu (Israel's Our Home.)
Bennett demands Netanyahu fix Security Cabinet flawsAnd to top it all off, the media gave lots of coverage to Herzog's angry speech. Though Herzog's Zionist Movement has almost as many new cracks as Bibi's coalition.
Jewish Home chairman and Minister of Education Naftali Bennett has demanded Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu fix security cabinet deficiencies as a coalition condition, ahead of Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman’s appointment as Defense Minister.
But don't count on this being a knockout against Netanyahu or even a TKO. He's the wiliest Israeli politician around, and he wants to leave office with honor. The chances are that he'll manage to cement the cracks and even expand his coalition. Politics is never dull.
