Bob Rae won’t run for permanent Liberal leadership
Bob Rae has decided he won't take a third shot at becoming permanent leader of the federal Liberal party.
Instead, sources have told The Canadian Press the Toronto MP is about to announce his interest in becoming interim leader until a permanent successor to Michael Ignatieff is chosen some 18 months from now.
And the funny thing is, if Rae gets 18 months as interim leader, that will leave him in charge of the Grits for nearly as long as Dion (2 years) or Ignatieff (under 2 and a half years).
