What Dilemma? What Unity?
Sorry, but I simply don't see this as a dilemma at all. The obligation of political leadership is to do what one believes to be in the best interest of the nation and to refrain from doing -- indeed, to oppose -- that which one believes to be harmful to the nation. What is this "good soldier" nonsense? Unity, shmunity: if Tzipi Livni believes the policies advocated by a Netanyahu government would be harmful to the nation, she has an obligation -- moral and political -- to not be complicit in those policies. There is no inherent value in bipartisanship, unity, etc.; the value in such procedures rests entirely on the nature of the policies that would ensue.
