Top Israeli candidate wants unity government

The politician with perhaps the best chance to replace Israel's embattled prime minister has called for a unity government to pursue the creation of Palestinian state living peacefully alongside Israel.
Deputy premier Tzipi Livni says she will try to form such a government if she wins next month's primary election of the ruling Kadima Party.
"What we called left and right belongs to the past," she told foreign reporters in Jerusalem on Thursday. Now most Israelis understand that having two states "is an Israeli interest."
Livni pointed to opinion polls that show her party winning a general election if she becomes Kadima head.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said he will step down after next month's primary. He is the target of a series of corruption probes.
