Defense Minister Ehud Barak announces this morning he's leaving politics.
The man who was once Prime Minister now retires without much explanation.
What does this mean?
Expect to see a struggle for top dog - Netanyahu's got to find a new military man to take charge in the next government.
Moshe 'Bogie' Yaalon, of course. A man with principles, experience and knowledge, serious enough to do the job and respected enough to get it done right.
Hope he rates high on the Likud list, results in tonight, but that shouldnt matter when the PM chooses his new Defense Minister. We'll be paying close attention, now and in the weeks leading up to the elections. Watch that name.
