The dim prospects for Israel's dovish opposition in upcoming elections is raising speculation that 89-year-old President Shimon Peres may make one last run to be prime minister. Peres is under pressure from political allies to seek the premiership, according to officials in his office. For now, they said on Nov. 4, 2012, he has no plans of stepping down from his current post. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)
