Today in a remarkable editorial, the Globe and Mail, made its choice for the Liberal leader to be chosen this coming week.  The Globe only assessed the four leading candidates and evaluated them this way:  Ignatieff has made too many mistakes; Rae has too much bagage; Kennedy is not bilingual.  Which leaves  Stephan Dion:  he has more federal experience than all the others combined; what he lacks in charisma he makes up in common sense;  he has mastered the two most important files in government – national unity and the environment. He is not perfect but he’s the best of the four.

      I must level here.  I am attending the convention as an alternate delegate for Dion. I am confident that when he becomes prime minister he will be one of the best leaders this country has ever had.

    I, too, think he is the best choice. Ignatieff is too much of the academic and I don’t trust academics (I am one, after all!). He hasn’t paid his dues in Canada the way Dion has. Dion’s sincerity — especially with respect to the environment — has impressed me as well. That will become an increasingly important topic. Hope your experience at the convention is positive, Neil!

    Jeez Neil – I think you just put the hex on Dion as you did with the Als.Ah well, too late.I recall whatshisname
    who said « The moving finger writes and having writ moves on, nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it. » Alas.

    Congratulations, your guy won. I preferred him to the others for the Unity issue alone. He’s the only Liberal candidate who really understands the separation issue in Quebec.
