So surprise, surprise bob are is not ruling out a grit leadership run. I guess he at least paid off his 2006 leadership debt. So much for his word that he would follow party rules. Like all grits he will change the rules to suit himself. He will probably get help from Sheila Copps. This is the grit idea of leadership: pick a guy who twice couldn't win the grit leadership and a politician from the pseudo chretien era. indeed a party expert thinks the grits need to be more liberal.
This is all good news for the Tories. Rae is still despised in Ontario. Indeed Andrea Horvath spent much of the Ontario election campaign running from the are legacy of debt and misery.
A rae/copps combo should doom the grits to many more years in the wilderness. The grits keep talking about fundraising, but it was pseudo chretien who put in these rules. They haven't gotten it right after many years. I doubt they will have much luck now. The killing of electoral welfare should help the grits sink even faster to the bottom.
