Sure, you lost the Ontario election, and the Trinity-Spadina by-election. Sure.
• Suck it up. Your brand still has value. That’s why federal and provincial Grits needed to kick the crap out of you – your brand had value.
• It wasn’t easy for them. They had to devote a lot of resources to doing that – because, again, you guys represent a real and manifest threat to Liberals in urban Ontario.
• You’re down this Summer, sure, and you’re licking your wounds. But you’ll be back – if you have discipline and conviction.
Take it from this Chretien and McGuinty Liberal: people will write your obituary a million times. Your job is to wipe your feet with the obituaries, and find your passion again.
Both those guys, who I was privileged to work for from 1993 to 2013, were written off many, many times. They came back.
You can, too, Dippers. Now quit your moping.
