you're right. The LPC went with Trudeau in 2013 despite his many and well known deficiencies. Her had there things going for him:
- Persona- he's handsome, personally very pleasant, and charming;
- He's a great campaigner - he actually loves campaigning and he does it well; and
But that's all there is and that's all there ever was. Dion and Ignatieff knew that - look at the critic posts they assigned to him in the post-Martin era - fitness and amateur sports and so on.
But he and his team recruited - in 2014/15 - a pretty substantial list iff candidates and they ran a good-to-great campaign in 2015. Then it all began to go sour. There was no vision ... sorry that's wrong, there was a green
vision but they failed to implement much of it because there was no coherence or discipline in the cabinet.
Now, it seems to me
, Freeland is yesterday's woman and Carney is interested in almost anything expect leading Canada and there needs to be a sacrificial Anglo before Joly can have her turn. If I was a Liberal I think
I would start polishing Anita Anand, Marci Ien, Filomena Tassi or Ginette Petitpas Taylor. I suspect
that either Anand or Ian might well frustrate Poilievre in Ontario and secure another Liberal strong minority, at least.
