Peter C. Newman wrote an article in the Globe today (Sept 23) about Michael Ignatieff that was truly interesting.

Ann Mclellan used to have my respect - but she's for Rae and Rae is a Chretienite/Power Corp./John Rae person. So, who's pulling her strings???

Women in politics by her standards is kissing the ass of what she perceives as the right people to get ahead - shame, shame, shame Annie.

Actually Anne is for Dion at the end of the day but "officially" neutral as she leads a party initiative around more women in politics - at least that is what my litle birds tell me.
