Sale Of The Century

Recent reports that Joe Volpe has sold the most new memberships in the Liberal leadership race have so embarrassed the party that they're trying to spin Gerard Kennedy as the actual front-runner, based on a few interviews with insiders and a bit of guesswork.

But if Kennedy is really leading the membership sales race, the real story would be Michael Ignatieff's relatively weak showing. Ignatieff may the darling of the caucus, but he is a philosopher king, above such petty things as retail politics.

Imagine a race between Gerard Kennedy and Joe Volpe, then.

And shudder.
