What next -- Part II

"Stephane Dion is expected to announce today that he will step aside as leader of Canada's Liberal Party following a loss in this week's federal election, the Toronto Star reported."

Too bad, because I think he's actually capable in the ways that count -- it's just that at this time and in this political environment, voters apparently want someone who's capable in the ways that don't count.

WTF? UPDATE: Dion won't step down. (CBC changed the article at the link, so I replaced it with a Bloomberg article. Bad CBC -- updating is okay, down the memory hole isn't.)
