I can either become part of the problem or part of the solution.
And I'm too tired after a long day at the office to provide solutions:
Paul Martin says he will remain the formal head of the Liberals until his replacement is chosen at a party convention, but outgoing defence minister Bill Graham will take over his parliamentary duties as the interim chief.
The outgoing prime minister made the announcement after emerging from his last cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Lucienne Robillard, outgoing minister of intergovernmental affairs and president of the privy council, has been named the deputy party leader.
Martin said it's up to the party to decide when to hold a leadership convention. "They will choose the time and the location," he said.
Martin's decision to stay on as leader for the time being saves the Liberal Party from having to scramble to find a suitable successor.
What a fitting end for Martin's leadership. An empty title, void of power and responsibility, held only to hold the place for an unknown successor. An asterisk beside a footnote of history.
