The arrogant Ms. Livni / Op-ed: As Tzipi Livniís political career draws to an end, she should blame it on her arrogance (YNetNews.Com -Yedioth Internet) Hanoch Daum Published: 03.18.12, 23:30)

Very soon, when the Kadima primaries will be over and Tzipi Livni
will ask herself how it happened to her, I would suggest that she go
back to one brief moment, which was coincidently documented and later
aired on television.
In this clip, Livni arrives at an election event, when a young woman
walks up to her and tells her excitedly: My dream was to meet you.
Livni looks at the woman for a split second, says ďthere, you made
the dream come true,Ē and keeps walking.
I take the liberty to estimate that these are Ms. Livniís final days
in Israeli politics, and there is no easy way to say it: Very little
has been left by that woman.
Livni failed as a foreign minister in the effort to elicit a
diplomatic achievement at the end of the Second Lebanon War, she was
part of the Gaza Disengagement failure, and she failed politically
when she conducted herself arrogantly vis-ŗ-vis Israelís religious
parties and fell short of forming a government with them.
Tzipi Livni was also a personal failure vis-ŗ-vis her own party
members, whose support she lost along the way as they defected to
Shaul Mofazís camp, because of that very same arrogance.
And so, these are Tzipi Livniís last days in Israelís political
arena, and thereís nobody out there who would miss her. (Copyright
