Nice column. What it doesn’t address is that, in politics as in life, all of us have a past. As Mr. Rae’s predecessor discovered – as he will discover – no one knows more about his past than the youngsters in the Conservative Research Group. They have already documented, catalogued and digitized every mistake and misstep Bob Rae ever made, from the time he was in diapers.
Everyone has a past, everyone makes mistakes. But Rae’s are on an order of magnitude that preordain the result.
It won’t be pretty.

Conservatives’ anti-Rae button hits bottom
