Anyone is welcome to submit a Guest Blog Entry to torontomike.com. I received the following entry earlier today.
Bob Rae will decide in the next few days to take the plunge & HOPEFULLY take the challenge going for the leader of the Liberal Party. I lived in his riding - York South Weston for many years & he always was there for us. A Good man but previously with the wrong party (NDP) & now is his chance to lead this country as the other 2 party leaders are useless. Harper is a mirror of DUBYA. Nuff said.
Bank on it - if Rae puts his name on the liberal party, the Liberals will win the next federal election by a landslide.
I too am quite familiar with Rae's old riding. When rumours first surfaced that he could be the next Liberal leader I mentioned it to a friend who openly laughed at the notion. When his term as premier of Ontario ended in 1995 we had the largest deficit on record and poor ol' Bob Rae was as unpopular as a skunk at a picnic.
It's been ten years and time has dulled those wounds. I think a powerful left-of-centre political force is exactly what this country will need when Stephen Harper's given the hook.
