Now, don't get me wrong. I never want to see Stephane Dion as Prime Minister of this great country, because I'm sure it would be an absolute disaster. However, I can't help but feel sorry for how badly the Liberal Party has hung this guy out to dry.
He's obviously the 'rebound' candidate, but does it have to be so obvious? Where are John Manley, Brian Tobin, Sheila Copps and Ralph Goodale, to name just a few of the Liberal heavy-hitters? I guess they are too busy planning their leadership bid to bother helping out with this election.
And what does that say about the Liberal Party in general? That they only make an effort when they are guaranteed to form the government? That they can't even try to win a fair fight against a tough competitor?
