Sharon's New Party

I've Been Thinking:
A sitting prime minister is abandoning his political party and creating another.
Actually, the reason Ariel Sharon is abandoning Likud, the party he named and helped create, is because he feels that a core group of colleagues in the party hierarchy have abandoned him and dissed him. He is right.
Sharon knows that the nation is with him.
My analysis gives Sharon an easy win with the entire middle of the country - rightwing and leftwing - giving him 35 of the 120 in Knesset seats.
This is ground breaking. I can't wait to learn the name he gives his new party.
