Whoever you vote for, you end up with Kadima

In the show of utter cynicism, Netanyahu struck a coalition deal with Kadima, whose leader will become vice-PM and will be the acting PM during Netanyahu’s absence. In essence Bibi has admitted that he lied to voters when he said that he is good and Kadima is bad; in the end they were sufficiently compatible to form a coalition government.

The coalition marginalizes Lieberman and allows Netanyahu to play him against the haredim parties.
