Israeli Government

Host Bob Edwards speaks with NPR's Jennifer Ludden about Israeli Prime Minister-elect Ariel Sharon's efforts to form a national unity government. Though nothing is final, much progress has been made in negotiations between Sharon's Likud Party and the more liberal Labor Party. In a national unity government, outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Barak might be Sharon's Defense Minister and Nobel Laureate Shimon Peres could be Foreign Minister.
