I'm watching via internet from another coast altogether. Anyone out that way got comments on the campaign?

National Newswatch is suggesting that he will either run in the next federal election or will be appointed ambassador to France.

Lord was courted by the Fed-Cons before. Time will tell, I guess.

He can do more for the Canadian conservative cause as a federal MP and cabinet minister. Harper knows that.

I hope he runs federally.

NB's loss will be Canada's gain. Lord would make a tremendous cabinet minister & would set himself up as the likely successor to Harper.

Well Lord is saying that he doesn't want to do Federal politics. Partially because I feel Lord is not a fan of Harper's.

Lord was the first premier to endorse Harper for the leadership and would easily be a high profile leadership contender in his own right.

Any decision to not enter federal politics will likely be a result of him wanting to spend more time with his family.

Perhaps Lord is showing (as usual) wisdom beyond his years. His family is young now and that only happens once. Harper is leading a new coalition which is still having adjustment/growing pains and the last thing Harper needs is to have a Harper/Lord dynamic like the Chretien/Martin dynamic. When the time comes to replace Harper, Lord will still be a contender and, in the meantime, his family gets to have his attention.

Oh, easily. I just don't think there's any real animosity between the two that would cause any real tension. I get the feeling Lord would probably be happy to serve as a cabinet minister and wouldn't want to force a sitting leader out of power.
