Scott Brison ran for the PC Party leadership.

Brison jumped to the Liberal Party after the merger and is now running for the Liberal Party Leadership.

After the "Super Weekend" he ended up with less than 4% delegate support.

Is this Brison's last act?

He should drop out now before he's embarassed at the convention.

Otherwise, people will start to question why he is critic/minister material.

He should drop out, but he is still in his 30's, he could be an MP for a while and have a shot at a leadership spot in the future.

...we can only hope that such a turn-coat has at last jumped his last ship...just like that Bob Rae - he was an NDP premier and now - he wants to lead the Liberals - just see!

As an objective person I can only be wary of any turn-coats that were once premiers!

I like that in Stephen Harper we have an individual who moves with political migrations rather than being moved by them.

The really bad news for Brison is that he has less support than Volpe.

I wonder if he realizes yet that maybe he could build more credibility, faster, if he did not immedietely try for every vacant position in every party that he joins?

Sadly in about 20 years after we have ruled the country(hopefully :D ) The Liberals will win. Scott Brison isn't a left-wing nut job, his economic policy is actually quite good, and I know a few of us could relate to it. Scot Brison is who im 'hoping' will win the Liberal leadership race, simply because he won't kill Canada like Rae, Iggy, or God-forbid Jack Layton would.

He is still young enough that if he drops out now, throws his support behind the candidate that ends up winning and holds his seat for the next decade or so, he could make some sort of come back for leadership down the line, he needs at least ten years of being a liberal under his belt before he can even consider it.

It was a short sided mistake, and could very well be the end of his run although he seems to have overwhelming support in his riding which could fuel a long political career.

Yes he has a lock on his riding, but is being a 9 term backbencher or Parliamentary secretary good enough for Mr. Brison? If he sees only limited success in his future, will he leave politics?

Perhaps he will take a page from Rae's book, quit politics for a decade or two, all the while reforming his image. Could he then come back and step into the leadership of whatever party he thinks has the best chances at that time?

You can't get rid of Brison that easily. He's like a weed that keeps coming back.

Please Yes!! I sure hope so. As a political geek that actually watches CPAC, if I had to hear him say "Justice John Gomery" one more time from his squeaky little voice in the last parliment, I was going to fly to Ottawa (West Jet of Course) and choke him like Homer chokes Bart.

But Brison knows he is not going to win. He will stick in it until he knows who is going to win then he will throw the 4 votes to the perceived winner to get a seat as a critic for the next parliment.

It's true that he does seem to understand business and economics better than anyone else in that party. However, he doesn't seem to have any principles that he is willing to abide by. If economics mattered to him, he would never have left the CPC. There is no way that the Liberal party will let him implement any of those economic policies. He joined the Liberals knowing that. Some of his actions and statements since he defected, also show that he will never be ready for prime-time. His knowledge of economics is a complete waste.

Rae is the one we want as Liberal leader. His recent statements about income-tax cuts notwithstanding, there is no way that Ontarians will support him, beyond the usual lunatic fringe. If tax-cuts is what people want, then they'll vote for the real, honest-to-goodness, dyed-in-the-wool tax-cutters, not a death-bed convert like Rae, who has a history of breaking his word in any case. Also, Ontarians may be tempted to give Iggy the benefit of the doubt, just because they don't really know him. They will not make that mistake with Bob Rae.
