If Lieberman wins, he’ll have an enormous task of regrouping, and of finding out whether or not the “Russians” are still in his camp. It’s not inconceivable that in the last five years, Israel’s one million Russian olim have gone native, and so an ethnically identified figure like Lieberman may be on the way out or off to the shop, to get himself reinvented.
