Tzipora Livni is the newly elected leader of the Kadima party and may become Israel's prime minister. ++ She represents those who favor a two-state solution instead of a Greater Israel, because they just want to live safely. ++ It is likely that she would negotiate "with pragmatic Palestinians and offer them full sovereignty in exchange for full peace." ++ If Livni wins the elections and surmounts domestic challenges such as rebuilding an effective coalition, her term could be a window of opportunity for the peace process.
