I am not really that much into Israeli politics, except to say that doesn't Tzipi Livni have perhaps the coolest name in the history of humanity? There is nothing about it that is not excellent.
And, often times in the past I wish I were an Israeli citizen, out of respect for their sense of community, their respect for knowledge, and their inherent, proud sense of will.
She might turn out to be a lousy Prime Minister, but at least she is Tzipi Livni. Actually, a lot of Israeli names are pretty spectacular -- a prerequisite for a hardy civilization, and something America (and most countries) mostly lacks.
