Sharon coronation continues

Why is Bibi's candidacy causing everyone out of Likud? What has he got to offer?

JTA:

Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz joined Ariel Sharon’s new Kadima party.

...despite vowing last week that he would stay put.

Israel Radio said Sharon had offered Mofaz the defense portfolio should he win re-election in March. Mofaz had been expected to lose a Likud primary next week to Benjamin Netanyahu, a former prime minister.

Netanyahu still faces competition from Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, as well as Yisrael Katz and Moshe Feiglin.
