Barak Resigns

NPR's Jennifer Ludden reports from Jerusalem on the resignation of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Barak's popularity has dropped following more than two months of violent clashes between Israelis and Palestinians, and his coalition government has seen its power erode. Still, the resignation is thought to be a tactical maneuver on Barak's part, which could help clear the way for him to run for re-election.
