This morning, it appears that Bibi's worst nightmare is about to be realized, and this one could be a sea-change that would make the Likud Beitenu move seem like a parlor trick.

Netanyahu will meet with Hollande at 7 AM, NY time, and will focus mainly on the Iranian nuclear program, two weeks after the European Union imposed additional sanctions against Iran.

Netanyahu said that the decision to run together won't change the Likud, but it would allow the Likud to change the State of Israel. But the new joint list will receive only 42 seats in the next Knesset elections next January, a Channel 2 News poll found on Sunday. It means that the parties will retain their current power.

While the Sun Sentinel took a chance with Barack Obama in 2008, it is switching sides and endorsing Romney this time. After acknowledging the tough economic environment Obama inherited, the Sun Sentinel's editorial board doesn't find a healthy plan for moving forward, and says that instead, "the president falls back on the tired talking point of increasing taxes for the wealthy."
