Kadima says no

Unsurprisingly, Kadima has said no to joining the Netanyahu - Barak government.
The Kadima Knesset faction announced on Monday that it was rejecting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's offer for the party to join the government.

Kadima relayed that the decision was made by a majority of the lawmakers during the a weekly meeting in the Knesset, and that Chairwoman Tzipi Livi was in full agreement on the matter with Shaul Mofaz, her number two and a longtime rival.

During the meeting, Mofaz said: "Netanyahu's offer, as it appears today, is arrogant and unrealistic. This arrogance is not a good quality for a leader; I tell Netanyahu today what I told Livni a few days ago: Arrogance is not a substitute for leadership."

On Monday, Netanyahu said he would offer Kadima three cabinet posts should it agree to join the coalition, a day after proposing Livni bring in the party in exchange for two minister without portfolio spots.
Unfortunately, I doubt this is the end of it.

Netanyahu can continue working to split Kadima. Livni and Mofaz may not bite but there are a few MKs who can be bought - for a price.
