Which came first? The game of chicken, or the egg on Ivison's face?
Yes, I know your chief rival won't print a story unless there are "Liberal insiders" to quote. But that's no excuse. And when you splash "Liberal-NDP plan would see Ignatieff as PM" on your front page just hours before Dion is unanimously chosen to lead the coalition, you come across looking pretty amateurish.
Oh, and to whoever leaked that story to Ivison - you may think you are helping your candidate of choice by spreading stories like that around, but you most definitely are not.
