Shimon Peres was voted today as the 9th President of Israel. Finally.
This perennially unelectable politician and statesman, who managed to be Prime Minister twice without being elected to the post, has finally won a vote. I am very happy for him (and for Israel), although I would have preferred to see him as Prime Minister right now. In the arid wilderness that is the Israeli political scene nowadays, he could have filled the void we all suffer from.
Never mind. At least he gets the respectable finale he deserves to a most remarkable life and career.
