As a LeBlanc supporter I'm obviously disappointed by this turn of events. I never expected Dominic to win, but felt he had a lot to bring to this race - especially on the issues of party renewal and of growing the party outside the GTA.
I do think that by dropping out, Dominic has missed a golden opportunity to showcase his many talents, but I'll leave it to him to explain his reasoning come tomorrow.
UPDATE: The talk of caucus appointing the leader? Ain't gonna happen. Not a chance. I should probably know better by now than to use the "not dumb enough" argument on anything the LPC does, but I have to think that the Liberal Party is not dumb enough to actually try something like that. It wouldn't serve anyone's interests. Not Rae's. Not Ignatieff's.
