Several Israeli officials are showing their disapproval of the Presidents "interference" on what they see as strictly kosher politics.
(Jerusalem Newswire) [A]ccording to a number of reports in the Israeli media Thursday, US President George W. Bush has decided to do what he can to try and ensure that Olmert, standing in for an incapacitated Ariel Sharon, is elected to be full-time prime minister when Israelis go to the polls on March 28.
Reports Thursday said that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has invited Olmert to visit Washington DC, probably sometime next month.
President Bush has not come out with direct vocal support for Olmert, although he is probably the only candidate supporting the road map (Editor's note: what's left of it).
Olmert has stressed that he will continue to work with America to realize a Palestinian state, an issue his political rivals probably oppose. Kadima (meaning "forward" in Hebrew) will probably win landslide elections to the dismay of some evangelicals and orthodox Jews.
Acting Prime Minister Olmert is currently leading the government after Sharon's unfortunate stroke (Editor's note: hopefully he will recover fully).
Those accusing Bush of playing favorites should realize that the President can associate himself with any potential leader, and it is ultimately up to the people to select the new Prime Minister.
