If the Liberals pick Dion, the CPC will be in for a serious fight in the next election. The guy is intelligent, experienced, and he believes in things. A scary, scary combination. I would much rather they pick someone who would simply do whatever the polls say to do.

But his English is terrible, still unpopular in most of Quebec & actually doesn't have that much charisma IMO. But he would be the toughest opponent for the CPC in the next vote.

That reminds me so much of what people were saying about Stephen Harper about a year ago.

Harper's french is light-years aheads of Dion's english, but still I won't underestimate DIon or anyone else who becomes Liberal leader. The CPC has its collective foot on the throat of the Liberals & to take a new leader lightly is to effective take the foot off & allow them to recover. the party should keep its foot on the Liberals' throat until we choke the life out of it.

I think Dion would be the best shot they have against Harper; though I still can't see them doing better than a CPC minority.

In fact, he's kinda the anti-Harper in some ways.

Furthermore, Dion would be the best person to hold together the different factions of the party.

Dion makes the most sense,
He is French which Ontario voters have never taken issue with, and is something Quebec voters at times will favor. He is intelligent and he lacks the baggage that Rae and Iggy bring to the table which will be used for election ad after election ad.

Top that off with the fact that he is scrappy, and could put up one heck of a fight. There is no doubt he was the one I was most worried about.

Futhermore, I think Dion would even do a passable job of running the country. I really can't see anyone else from the current Liberal leadership field ever sitting in the big chair. All I see is disater if Rae, Iggy, or Kennedy actually did become PM. Dion is the only Liberal I see as actually capable of running the country, and not into the ground.

He is an old Liberal from Quebec. If the Liberal party truly wants to put scandal behind them they need an outsider regardless of how involved Dion was with the scandal.

Time is the best cure for any heartbreak,

I am nearly certain that Chretien could show up in Montreal in December find a way into the dance on the promise that he is here to "Clean up the mess within the Liberal Party" get elected leader and win a majority government,

Never overestimate the Canadian voter, they love a good show.

Hell, maybe its been long enough that Martin could come back. There have been empircal studies that conclusively prove that Ontario voter have an electoral memory of 30 seconds.

On that note, I wonder why John Turner never attempted a political comeback?

With Iggy's, Rae's, and Dion's stands on federalism, it is now looking like an Ignatieff or Rae leadership win will spark the next unity crisis. It is looking like a disaster waiting to happen if the Liberals pick anyone other than Dion.

Not if the next election results in a Conservative majority which is a distinct possibility.
