As for a required flushing down the electoral toilet to rid the party of far left libs, that is a real possibility. The next leader will have to be more centrist.

cheers

Well that would leave Justin Trudeau out..and for a long time to come.

Let the race begin!


Iggy -- Has been single-handedly ripping the party apart and undermining Dion. He stalled at 40% in the last liblead race and has no room for growth.

Rae -- He lost last time and Ontarian's don't trust him.

Kennedy -- Could be a dark horse, but who's left from the Dion "base" to support him?

Manley -- blah.

McKenna -- Has been touted and touted for over 20 years. Guy just doesn't have the guts.

Tobin -- My out of the gate prediction is that Brian Tobin will win. He's been all over the TVs this election and could get the Chretien machine behind him.

It's got to be Iggy. I'd bet on it.

Iggy and McKenna are too conservative for 60 to 70% of the party. Dion beating Iggy last time shows that ideological purity means everything to 60% or more of Liberals. Iggy may very well be on the final ballot, but even if he is... he loses.

I think that it'll be Bob Rae, personally.

I disagree. There are two reasons Dion won and not Iggy.

1. Kennedy is too stupid
2. Rae is too arrogant and stubborn.

Result?
Kennedy supported a fool
Rae could not bring himself to concede defeat to an old dorm buddy

This time around voting will be a bit more calculated... bet on it.

It's Iggy's unless Manley throws his hat in. Then it gets interesting.

I don't think that Liberals view Iggy as a safer bet than Rae. But... we'll see.

Dominic LeBlanc is throwing his hat in the ring. I've seen this guy talk before, and I was not impressed.

McKenna just announced he won't run.

Anybody else besides me thinking that Paul Martin might go for it?

Manley is possibly in the mix so I think it will be him or Iggy..
