Iggy Pops

If I didn't know better, I would think Bob Rae has read my blog and saw the light. What other reason could he have for backing out of the leadership race. No doubt promises were made and favors owed, but that is the nature of politics.

Now, Ignatieff will become the next leader of the Liberal Party. He should have been the leader last time around, but in a surprising turnaround at the last convention, Dion outpaced Iggy and the other candidates. Could it be that Dion is from Quebec? The Liberals do have a habit of altnerating between French-Canadian and English-Canadian leaders. Unfortunately, they also have a habit of choosing the wrong man like John Turner, Paul Martin, and now Stephan Dion. Only time will tell if Iggy will have the chutzpa to lead the Grits to victory, or become another lame duck.
