Igali the wrestler? I think even Garneau would have little chance at it(looks like he won't even win his seat), but a former wrestler brings even less to the table. Cotler has the credetials, but I don't know if he has the presence, I haven't seen him speak.
Oh yes...it will be Brian Tobin. Mark my word on it. At the very least, he will make a run for it, and assuming Manley does not run, he will have the silent backing of the mass of Chretien supporters. Again..assuming Manley doesn't run.
Keep in mind...depending if the Liberals lose, and assuming they will based on polls and what not, especially to a majority PC government...than the Liberal Party will have to decide if they want to go the unsuccessful Martin supporters route, or go back to the Truduea/Chretien type of Liberal.
I am not saying that Trudeau was not great. But there is a fundamental split in he Liberal Party (that has been there for a loong time). The best example of that split is what I refer to as Pearson's boys (Trudeau, Chretien) and those that follow in that legacy ..particularly the one set out by Trudeau. Than there is the more conservative types like Martin and those that that don't suscripe the the Trudeau Legacy.
Well its a percived difference admittedly. Martin and those "like Martin" seem to be more moderate conservative based thinking, particularly in concerns to the economy. They seem to be ..um..more moderate in their approach to social issues as well.
Like i said, its percieved differences. And if the differences were not there, than why else would there be this big divide between the Martin camp and the Chretien camp? Because there is a fundamental difference in the Liberal party..some go more moderate conservative..and some want to go more left of centre.
