Attacking Rae ill-advised?

Putting aside whether or not Rae's BC delegates are actually tainted by fraud, it may be ill-advised for Ignatieff, Kennedy and Dion to be going for the jugular this way. Rae's support could turn out to be crucial to winning the race, as any one of the four front-runners could be a king-maker. I don't understand why the other three camps are doing this. It would be wise, I think, for at least one of the camps to play nice with Rae, hoping to pick up his support if he drops off.

But it would also be dishonest to let Iggy take the bad-guy fall when they would all benefit from a change in the ruling.

The fact is, if Rae gets to keep his delegate spots, they're going to go to real delegates now instead of the phony, for-show, wouldn't have actually gone to Montreal- delegates that were elected on super-weekend.

As petty as it looks to contest, I don't think that his position should get stronger as a result of his team's fraud.
