Shadows of the Future?

Does Ariel Sharon's formation of a new centrist party in Israel offer important lessons in American politics? Should we stand up and take notice? I think so.

The news went off like a bombshell in Middle East politics: Israeli Prime
Minster Ariel Sharon quit the right-wing Likud party he helped found three
decades ago to form a centrist party called “Kadima” (in English, the term means
"forward").

Its impact may reverberate in unexpected ways across the
ocean — Sharon’s action provides a powerful example of how centrist politics
might evolve in the U.S. if the moderate majority in this country continues to
be held hostage by professional partisans on the left and right. -source

There is change on the horizon, and America would be remise to ignore it.
