If I was "Iggy-Rae" Liberal or of those camps... this item would be "up" on my reading list and the Blackberry'd be smokin'. This does "fit"
very well and I perceive "no negative" for Kennedy or Dion. Their views are quite similar but from different cultural perspectives - a valuable
"thing". I don't see either dropping out before December 2nd yet, and I look forward to some more jostling for cabinet horse-trading. Volpe's
delegate-votes may go last (if they haven't gone already) as nobody wants to "be around him" anymore... that could be significant in a tight set-up
for third ballot.
Dion equipped with the Kennedy/Stronach English machine would certainly be a "force-majeur" at the convention, especially considerering that the
preponderance of "Old One's" are already "Dion friendly". Hmmm, the Quebec Liberal-old-school allied with the Ontario/other Liberal-left... geez
eh, that might just work pretty well especially in an election. You need a French machine and an English machine to get a majority... this'd be a
I would expect beyond the October 31st book launch by Rae, and whatever Iggy steps in next, rumblings of alliances are valid if not settled. December
2nd ought to be pretty interesting after the first ballot.
Just my own personal expectation, but I'd be super-surprised if there weren't some surprises yet... this is gettin' "good" and I now see the
reason behind the multi-month selection process - sustained opportunity for exposure regionally and nationally.
Rae or Iggy or both will try and harpoon the other again... it's only a matter of time and I still can't find one bit of "dirt" on Dion. "Mr.
Clean au Francais" or "M. Net"? LOL. I like the guy. I hope the rest of English Canada does too or at least enough to keep America's PM Stephen
"An Army Of One" Harper and his voiceless lip-synching clone-bots in reach during the next election. Much can, and will happen.
