As you may know, auto parts magnate Belinda Stronach has declared her intent to run for the leadership of this newfangled Conservative Party of Canada. However, as I understand it (which, in truth, is not all that well), Stephen Harper is more or less a shoe-in for the party leader. This is too bad, for, as Rick Mercer pointed out last night, times are tough when Harper is the most charismatic person available for the job.
As I understand it, Stronach’s politics are far more centrist than Harper’s. Combine this with her youth, gender and freshness, and she’s really the only candidate that would make me consider supporting the Conservative Party in the next election. That’s not a likely scenario, but with Harper at the helm, you can forget about it.
