Yesterday's Quebec byelection results were quite entertaining, in spite of having to endure the the translations at CPAC.
However, while watching Stephane Dion's speech in Outremont, I almost felt a measure of compassion and admiration for his graceful acceptance of the historical defeat.
Liblogs are replete with head-smacking introspection this morning and many are questioning Stephane Dion's leadership.
Others see it more as a Bloc meltdown.
Personally, I think the Liberal party should rally behind Dion, and give him another chance.
Why, you ask?
Well, Greg Weston supplies the answer here - No Need to Panic. A byelection is often more of a focus on local candidates than a test of leadership.
You can't buy that argument? This is not consistent with Joanne's wildly partisan, tin-foil helmeted, Tory-entrenched, blinder-encrusted bias?
Well check out the last line in Weston's column. That is probably closer to the truth.
