This should be fun

I have little doubt that the grit grandees will allow the ex dipper Rae to run. That will probably mean Rae will soon have to step down as grit interim leader. The grits will be even more eclipsed by the dippers in the house without Rae. I have little doubt that Rae will be criwned grit leader in he iffy tradition with similar results. If Rae wins it will show the world the grits don't want to renew. It will mean the final chapter in the grit story

I really don't think that the world gives a shit what these guys do anymore.

I am very interested in the outcome - hopefully the final extinguishment - of the Federal Liberals.
your expectation that he runs for leader is astute as Rae is at a cross roads at 64 years of age and he likely has asked himself what else he will do with his life but attempt to resurrect the Liberals.

On the other hand who will wear the shame when the party finally folds.

But the "tradition" of alternating English and French leaders will get in the way. Imagine the bloodbath if Denis Coderre or the Young Dauphin contest the leadership.

The "Blue" wing of the Liberal Party may also fight the coronation of Bob Rae, although John Manley may not be able or willing to contest the spot directly. There may be some younger MPs from that tradition who will make the challenge.

The upside for the LPC is they may end up defining who they are and what they stand for, but more likely they will expend scarce resources and goodwill knifing each other over the remaining scraps of power.
