Kicking a man when he's down...

From the Guardian's editorial praising Stéphane Dion today:
Eight candidates went to Montreal hoping to step into the shoes of Brian Martin, who stood down this year.
Ouch!

Also of note in this editorial:
The bright and bookish Mr Dion does not come over as the kind of machine politician who thrives in the sweaty convention atmosphere. But, after triumphing in a test of nerves like this, winning Canada's next general election should be child's play.
Guess we can't call him perenially underestimated anymore, eh?
