Great article by Adler...

Quote:
There is a significant problem faced by any leader who assumes control of a machine because of who he isn't. He gets tagged with the surname nobody wants to wear. It's a three letter word that begins with "w" and rhymes with boo. Remember Joe Who? Joe Clark received that crown of thorns more than three decades ago and when his obituary is written, it will be said that a Conservative leadership convention in the 1970's was won by a man who inspired less enthusiasm in Canadian voters than the sight of rats in a New York City Taco Bell.

Stephane Dion has been branded the Francophone Joe Clark by Canada's punditocracy. It is not exclusively because he wasn't supposed to win the leadership but did. It's also because he seems to have a tin ear on the central issues of our times. He is trying to be the green guy. But he cannot seem to be explain why he wasn't able to colour the Liberal agenda green when he was the minister of the environment. He was part of the government that signed the Kyoto Protocol. In recent days, Jean Chretien's number one advisor, Eddie Goldenberg spilled the beans. The Liberals signed Kyoto but they had no intention of fulfilling the bargain. It was just another piece of Liberal larceny, making Dion just another passenger in the getaway car.

Stephane Dion will be the first elected(as opposed to Bill Graham) Liberal leader never to be Prime Minister.

That will be Dion<Clark

Well, had to happen some time. I guess we really won't know until it actually happens though.
