The first leadership contender

Well, Frank McKenna is running for the leadership of the Liberal Party. He didn't say that, of course, but he has resigned as ambassador to the United States. This puts the unofficial race to succeed Martin into full swing, and gives us a sense of what the playing field will look like - no doubt other potential candidates are taking note. McKenna is considered a front-runner - though as I said earlier, that could change once he starts getting scrutinized - so that will definitely have an impact.

I just put up a blog devoted to a Stephane Dion bid for the leadership if anyone is interested.

He had no choice but to resign. That is what political appointees do when the government changes. Rock should do the same.
