Ynet Gushes Over Stanley Greenberg
A new Ynet report that reads like a PR piece tells us that "world-renowned American pollster Stanley Greenberg, who led former Prime Minister Ehud Barak to an impressive elections win in 1999, will be arriving in Israel to meet with Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz."
Ynet reveals that "Greenberg, in almost every case, has bet on the winning horse and is known as someone who marks the target and decisively advances towards it. In 1999 he had known for certain what was about to materialize on the eve of the elections."
The Ynet article forgets to mention that Greenberg also worked for Barak in the 2001 elections, when Ariel Sharon defeated Barak in a landslide, as well as for Al Gore in the 2000 U.S. election.
Perhaps Greenberg knows "for certain" what will materialize in Israel's 2006 elections - not an Amir Peretz victory - but as with the case with Barak's failed reelection bid and Gore's presidential campaign, decides that he needs to make a living, even if it entails a "bet on the losing horse."
