Colour Me Interested

It's now official. I wonder...
"To those Liberals urging him to enter political life, Mr. Ignatieff is seen as both a philosopher-king in Mr. Trudeau's iconic mould and someone who would generate excitement around progressive ideas in a party seen as having become lacklustre, drifting and visionless under Mr. Martin."

He might one day make a good Minister of Foreign Affairs.

ouch, Jason, that was a little harsh. That's like saying: "one day, he'll make a good wing-man."

I'm conflicted about Ignatieff. He's a thinker, sure, and he came out on the right side for Iraq. But he isn't much of a leader.

Don't get me wrong, he isn't any worse than Paul Martin -- he's a good deal better, IMHO. But he's still quite wishy-washy, and can't be relied upon to stick to his guns in the face of significant opposition, which is my measure of what makes a good leader (as opposed to a person with some decent ideas).

But hey, having a leader with at least some ethical principles (other than "hey, let's follow the UN!") for a foreign policy would be a huge step up for Canada.

I wish you all well with him, from my south-of-the-border home.
