We were all surprised that Belinda Stronach did not jump into the Liberal leadership race. Lacking formal education, actual accomplishments and ideas, commitment to the party and fluency in French didn't stop the other candidates, so why should those problems have stopped her?
This may be the real reason she stayed out of the race.
Our relationship with the White House was rather cold under the previous government.
Imagine how much worse they'd be between President Hillary Clinton and Prime Minister Belinda Stronach.
