Hallowe'en night. Rae is In.

We are pleased to announce that Bob Rae has officially thrown his hat into the ring. Fitting because of the three interviews we conducted during the run up to the last race, we enjoyed our time with Mr. Rae the most. We will be re-posting the transcripts to that interview over the coming days.

In the meantime this was another memorable Bob Rae moment. One for the ages and a golden moment in Canadian political history.

How can you not like a candidate who lists Fargo and The Big Lebowski as among his favorite movies on his Facebook page?

I like Bob Rae, but a great many Ontario people do not.

I like Rae as a person. But, living in Ontario, if he wins leadership, I simply won't vote next time around. I can't in good conscience believe he would be good for Canada.

Bob Rae was an automatic candidate. As is Ignatieff.

They are both intelligent, charismatic and well spoken. They represent a lean in different directions and would likely be better party managers that what's in place today.

Their problems are that this is their second race. This provides a "second hand" aura. They are both in their 60's and they are both from Toronto.

Tomm - Paul Martin and Jean Chretien were both "second hand" by that no worries.

It will be an interesting race.

I have no doubt that many policy positions will be discussed. There are a lot of reasonable and applicable ideas that the Liberals could bring forward as platform planks that would resonate with the electors that are either staying home or voting Tory.
