Wiesel for president of Israel?

I just got this bit of news. Apparently the Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert, wants Eilie Wiesel to be the next president of Israel.
Olmert has made it clear that he prefers a president who does not emerge from the ranks of the political arena, as was the case with Katzav and others. Wiesel, who is internationally acclaimed, has been awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize and is widely respected internationally.

Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor....
Got that?
