That's swell, but can he play the piano?

Michael Ignatieff comes in 64th on Foreign Policy's list of the Top 100 International Thinkers.

  • Do they know something the rest of Canada doesn't?

    "Poised to become Canadian prime minister next year"

    Methinks he wouldn't make the list riding at mid-low 20s in the polls. Perhaps Jack Layton will make it next year if he can garner 5% more support in the polls.

  • Instead of the illiterate Cons runnin him down ,maybe they should feel good about a Canadian getting that far.

  • Cari - you are right. Hey, Gretzky put pucks in a net and he's a big hero and has lived in the US for over 20 years, but he's a hero to the Cons.

    Cons don't like education or smarts. They like Timbits.

  • it's important to note the actual publication involved. But when our PM makes his decisions on whether/if he's going somewhere on whether the cool kids are going (see obama and climate change), our PM sure as hell ain't gonna make the list.

  • Michael Ignatieff is the most perfect Canadian ever created. We are blessed with having him. He will save Canada from the Tories who are hellbent on death and suffering.

    Michael Ignatieff has a glorious vision: to make Canada the greatest country in the world by 2017. That is deep thinking and certainly has other countries, like Vietnam and Paraguay, shaking in their boots.

    LOL. I can never tell when an Anonymous poster is a partisan nut, or someone pretending to be a partisan nut for comedic purposes, but it's equally entertaining either way!

    Luke's right. I read the list and it's not exactly a list you should be proud to be on.

  • You can tell Ignatieff is a deep thinker by all the weighty policy proposals he's put forward.

  • Personally, I want a Prime Minister who thinks and acts for Canadians. Let the other nations of the world elect their own leaders.
