Latma Makes More Sense Than Political Speculations/Predictions in The News

Periodically I have to remind everyone that the polls aren't the "last word;" the elections are.  Polls can show trends and potential but no more than that.  And after over forty years of observing the Israeli political scene from up close --we made aliyah in 1970-- I can say for certain that Prime Ministers generally surprise the public with their cabinet appointments.

The "pundits" are again predicting that  Vice Prime Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon will be Defense Minister.  Bibi didn't choose him for that position in the outgoing government and he shouldn't count his chickens this time either.  Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu loves to surprise us.  The only thing I would feel safe predicting is that there will be surprises.

In the meantime, watch the latest Latma.
