Bob Rae Down and Out

Canadian Press is reporting that Stéphane Dion will resign as Liberal leader today. Finally.

And CP is also reporting that Ignatieff is expected to be installed as leader Wednesday by a vote of party MPs and senators. I doubt that Rae is happy with the news.

The Globe and Mail reported today that:

There is nervousness among Ontario Liberals… that Mr. Rae’s tenure as the province’s NDP premier during a difficult economic period would hurt the party now if he became leader.

Over the past couple of weeks there has been a real spike in people accessing this post from two years ago. And a few people posting new comments to that old post. 

There is good reason for people in Ontario to be nervous about Bob Rae.
