Unfortunately, I am inclined to agree with what Mark James said in his post's title.

These guys don't just walk away from power. It's like fly paper to them, and they are more devoted to acquiring and maintaining it than they are to using it properly.

But it isn't just Olmert, it's all the remnants of the Sharon Kadima Government that must go, because otherwise nothing will really change.
