Disgusting: do you remember Dan Halutz, and one of the reasons he had to resign: the day the war started, he quickly sold a bunch of stock, if I recall, or some other, totally selfish USE of the war for himself. He had to go; I sure hope THEY DO TOO!

Kadima Held Secret Poll to Know if War Improves Its Popularity

( The ruling Kadima party commissioned a poll on Day 2 of Operation Cast Lead to assess how the war affected its chances at the ballot boxes in the upcoming elections, News1 reported Sunday.

The poll was held among several hundred people, who were asked several questions on the subject. It was carried out on December 28 by a polling firm that works for Kadima.

News1 notes that Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni and other Kadima leaders announced that they were suspending the party's election campaign because of the war. It notes that the timing and nature of the poll would make it seem that the ruling party had political considerations in mind at the time it launched the war.

Some pundits have claimed from the outset of the war that the war itself is a political campaign for Kadima and Labor. Labor, which is headed by Defense Minister Ehud Barak, has indeed risen dramatically in the polls since the war began, from about 11 projected Knesset seats to about 16. Kadima and Likud enjoy similar levels of support in the polls to the ones they had on the week before the war began.
