#4 Kadima sez "we won", Likud sez "we won". Wait & see.

#5 But... for Israel's sense of self preservation: triple crap.

#6 Livni might win the vote but she may not be able to put together a majority. Netanyahu has an easier path to do that even if he comes in second. Watch and wait.

#7 Do the same folks do exit polls over there as over here?

#9 Michael Medved sez that Israeli exit polls-- by law-- do not include active duty military. He has family in Israel, so maybe he knows what he's talking about.

#10 with 76% counted
projections were
Kadima 29 mandates,
Likud 28
Israel Beiteinu 16
Labor 12
Shas 11
Meretz 4,
United Torah Judaism 4,
National Union 4,
Hadash 4,
Bayit Hayihudi 3,
United Arab List 3, and
Balad 2 seats.

Israel Beiteinu would prefer Likud to Kadima
Shas will not be in a coalition with IsBeit
Labor won't be in a coalition with Likud, etc.

It is a bit like figuring out seating at a Hatfield-McCoy wedding.

#11 Exit polls are always accurate. Just ask John Kerry.

All snarking aside, either of these would do well for Israel I think. At least, as much as I can determine without being in Israel.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the U.S. has a First Past The Post electoral system.
