And how ridiculous is it that Hall Findlay -- knocked out after the first ballot in 2006 -- is thinking about running AGAIN?
One of the best things about the leadership race of 2009 was that there was no race -- Ignatieff just ascended and that was it. This time around, the Liberals don't need a repeat of 2006, with a batch of no-chance no-names travelling around the country giving speeches. The Toronto Star writes:
. . . the Liberal race is not some student council election or a kids’ soccer team where everybody gets an equal chance to participate so no one’s feelings are hurt.Justin Trudeau, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
Arguably this race is the most important in the Liberals’ history, given that the party is at an all-time low in terms of seats in Parliament.. . .
What Liberals should avoid is wasting valuable time and effort simply to feed the egos of candidates who have no hope of leading them out of the wilderness.
