Carville gets the Shawinigan handshake

Forgot to post this one, from the dinner Monday night in Ottawa.  Wanna know how to do deal with your political opponents?  No “conversations” or “process”: let Chretien show the way!

(Carville survived, by the way.  Fret not.)

  2. Glen says:

    Heh heh. Only in Canada could the PM assaulting someone become a running gag! It’s one of the things I love about this place.

  3. Jason says:

    Who’s the old photobomber in the background?

  4. Audrey Grenier-Williams says:

    I just love PM Chretien…..wish he was still our pm

  5. Matt says:

    Best. Picture. Ever.

    Chretien always had a good sense of humour. Got a great big soft spot for this former PM–and I’m still grateful for his stand on the Iraq war. May he be able to give the Shawinigan Handshake for many years to come.

    (I just took a second look at that picture. Looking at the musculature of that right hand, I wouldn’t doubt he still has a pretty decent grip–I wouldn’t want him to get pissed off at me! 🙂 )
