Livni, who saved president Ariel Sharon's government after he lost a party referendum on his Gaza pullout plan by suggesting a compromise Cabinet resolution; Difficult position of Likud after Sharon's dismissal of the referendum, which he initiated himself; Livni's reassurance that Likud can remain true to itself despite withdrawing from its core ideological commitment to preserve Israel's post-1967 borders; Likud, which has come to resemble the old Labor party of pragmatic hawks like Golda Meir and Moshe Dayan.
