A article today from the Chronicle Herald on how Ignatieff does not have the killer instinct needed for a party leader and how this has lead to him having now missed his best opportunity to bring down the government and force an election.
My favorite line from the above article: "If Jean Chretien was somehow magically the Liberal leader right now, does anyone doubt that we’d be in an election?"
This to me is a telling line. Not so much because it is true, but it is a subtle reminder to everyone that when it comes to throw 'em down nasty politics, Jean Chretien was in a league of his own. The Liberals like to yell at the top of their lungs about how PM Harper is being such a bully, but when you compare the 2 most would have to admit that Jean wins in the "bully" department hands down.
