I think you're right - he's a bit too much of an idealist.  That's why he's ended up with relatively so many broken promises.

Italy and Israel have generally been very very unstable.  They've had elections very close together and have had real trouble forming governments at times.  Another example of that is Belgium, where it has at times taken more than a year to cobble a government together.  This comes from having a fractured populace - something that I feel Canada has when we're talking about language and regionalism.  Germany is far more homogenous.
