So True

<Link>

I’m sorry, but I don’t want a Prime Minister who is “just like me”. If I did, I’d run myself. I want someone who has a a broader perspective, with a better understanding of how government and economics work, and who is smarter than me (and I’ve got a pretty kick-ass IQ).

I don’t give a rat’s ass if you have a hunting license or a brood of kids or if you play piano or wear sweater vests. I want to know that you have great ideas, and a vision for this country that approximates mine, and a solid, practical plan for how to get us there.

I’ve said it before – if Stephane Dion, for all his intellect and ideals and bold, forward-looking vision turns out to be unelectable in this country simply because he has a heavy accent, it will say more about us than it does about him. Gods help us all.
