Paul Martin, political failure
Paul Martin is conceding.
Did he vanquish Western alienation? Did he abolish the horrid conditions in which Aboriginal Canadians live?
His government, by his own standards, was a complete and utter failure.
Time for the long knives to come out. This is what he inherited from the rudderless Jean Chretien. This is what he has earned on his own merits. Not much of an electoral record, is it?
And now, he has just stepped away from the Liberal leadership. Well, it was either that, or grow a knife hilt out of his back.
On positive note, that certainly extends the life of the Conservative minority as the Liberals retool. Time to push the agenda, Stephen.
