Will Lieberman turn hard left?

Based upon his recent bizarre statements, as described by Mati Tuchfeld, it's a troubling question indeed if this decidedly irresponsible politician could end up a real traitor:
The main question that underpins the political crisis that emerged in the wake of the Sept. 17 elections has been who will blink first: Will it be Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who pledged to keep the 55-MK block comprising Likud, the national-religious parties and the ultra-Orthodox together no matter what, or Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, who promised to pursue a unity government with the Likud but without Netanyahu.

Without one of them relenting, Israel will soon be heading for its third general elections, full-speed ahead.

On Saturday night, it became clear that the one who plans to cave in was none other than Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Lieberman, the man whose petty politics got us here in the first place.

In an interview with Channel 12 News, a hysterical Lieberman showed his hand, saying that to prevent a third run at the polls, he would be willing to share the government table with both the "ultra-Orthodox and Messianic" parties and the Joint Arab List, whose lawmakers he has often castigated an "the enemy within."

Lieberman's zigzagging has shuffled the deck as the fact he was suddenly willing to join anyone has shown them that maybe – just maybe – third elections are avoidable.

It seems chances are increasing that Lieberman would join Gantz, thus teaming with the Left and the Arab parties to form a minority government, but Yisrael Beytenu's leader has been known to surprise.
Maybe, but he's still setting alarmingly poor examples, and the notion anybody would vote for him is devastating. He does not deserve to be a politician, no matter how things turn out.
