Willie-O BS: Canuck Liberal Party Leader... who? (132* d) RE: BS: Canuck Liberal Party Leader... who? 30 Oct 08


Who the hell knows what's going to happen in the Liberal Party? I mean, who knew last time?

At the moment, I am in agreement with Charmion. You heard it here first. I like Dryden, (really liked his speech last time, he's a guy with both substance and mass recognition/appeal--I don't know why the party delegates didn't see that but he never had a chance with them) but still see Iggy as front-runner for better, worse or Liberal; if Manley commits it'll be interesting.

If they put their party back together sufficiently, it might be PM Ignatieff or whomever gets the keys to 24, but I would be totally unsurprised to see Elizabeth May as the next Liberal Minister of the Environment. (I admire her but can't quite figure out her game at the moment; the latter is also true of a lot of her own current party). And M Dion as a senior minister, perhaps External Affairs; he has shown his competency at that level before.   

All of this is secondary to the big question of how to re-align enough of the four parties in the centre-to-left that are splitting the majority of votes, and giving the Conservatives a free ride.

Perhaps that's for another thread. I don't have time to get started on the matter now.
