President Shimon Peres?

Dry Bones cartoon -Shimon Peres - Israel's Next President?

Shimon Peres is an Israeli politician who has negotiated his way into one powerful government position after another.

Speculation has started about who will be chosen as our next president. Shimon clearly has his eye on the job, but at the same time there's talk about reforming our system by giving power to a president who would be independent of the legislature.

I put the two stories together in this cartoon.

I like to think that Peres would appreciate and laugh at the cartoon. If not a hearty laugh, perhaps an amused chuckle? On the other hand...
