Don't Take Dion With You to the Horse Track...

Happy New Year, very busy, more posts later ... you know the routine.

Lots of comment out there, on both sides of the fence, on the newest Tory MP. But whether or not Khan's floor-crossing is good or bad (in either the "strategic" or "moral" sense of the words), this is a story that just never should have been allowed to take root. And while it won't get as much attention, it doesn't show Dion's judgment in a good light.

Here's a hint for Stephane, not that he'll take my advice: when you hear rumours from a number of sources that one of your MPs is jumping ship, don't tell the CBC that there's simply no way it's going to happen. It makes you look a bit silly, especially when it does in fact happen a short time later.

More later.

I wonder what Khan was saying to Dion. Sounds a bit like Belinda. Cooing assurrances until the last moment.

A good question, but I don't recall Harper going on the CBC the morning she crossed the floor in order to say that all was well, Belinda would be on the team for the long haul, etc.

Dion has to get a bit smarter about what he says to the media should this situation, or something like it, arise again. Luckily for him, I don't think this will be a very big story.

so are the Tories planning to 'earn' their majority by creating 30+ more cabinet posts ...
