Who would you like to see drafted to run for the Conservative party (or another party)?

Don Cherry?
Gwyn Morgan?
Gerry Nicholls?
Ben Mulroney?

He ran for the PCs in 97.

I'd also like to see:

Walter Robinson (he was robbed last time)

Bernard Lord

Tim Powers

He's a good east coast guy. We know how to mock our opponents better than anyone. John Crosbie for example.

As for those i'd like to see "drafted" Mario Dumont would be a great MP. As would Gen. MacKenzie.

Good pick. I've considered that myself too but I wonder if he'd be more of a liability.

Mike Harris
Bernard Lord

And not as if we need the help in Alberta but Preston Manning has always been an interesting speaker.

David Asper would be a nice high profile in Ontario.

I suppose... I think his work with the Manning institute could be more beneficial. Of course, its still in its initial stages, but someday it could be a very powerful tool for conservatives in this country. His advocacy for responsible government might be more effective than a couple terms in a "sober second thought" institution.

With Ontario's hatred for Mike Harris... Its tough to say if I'd like to see him run... maybe in a rural southern ontario riding, or london/sarnia(not Lambton County though, hehehe Ipperwash ;) ) for example

I think Manning's past involvement in politics is equivalent to 3 or 4 lifetimes of political service. Having him in sit in the Senate (elected or appointed) might an under use of his talent. I think he performs better without the shackles of bureaucracy and all the stuff that goes on in political backrooms.

I think that a few years of Dalton Mcginty in office has really made Ontario's hatred for Mike Harris wash out a little, you can say what you want about him but if you thumb through both his platforms you usually knew what was coming.

If he ran in a riding like Nipissing-Timiskaming which was his Provincal Riding I think he may stand an excellent chance of ousting Anthony Rota.
