From the BBC:
Do you think that this will signal a halt / slowing of Sharon's political aims or will he plough on regardless? I think that he'll throw caution to the wind and press forward with this plans for Kadima. I've always considered Sharon an arrogant man and this new party is his baby, so I can't see him handing the reins over to anyone else.
Israeli PM Ariel Sharon has spent a quiet night in hospital after suffering a minor stroke and his condition is "good", officials have said. A statement from Mr Sharon's office said he would be examined on Monday morning to "decide on the continuation of his treatment". An official from his office said Mr Sharon, 77, was walking and talking. Mr Sharon was taken to hospital in Jerusalem after complaining of feeling unwell late on Sunday. Hospital officials said later on Sunday that the prime minister was conscious and his condition not life-threatening.
