Dion the passenger
I'm not quite sure what to make of this.
You have one of Dion's top people openly questioning the loyalty of other top Liberals. You have those other top Liberals openly acknowledging their anger over her remarks.
What does it mean?
Well, it means that there's still a leadership gap there somewhere. Why? Well, because, when you read the entire article, you get the sense that Dion is the passenger in all this rather than the driver.
His top person is saying whatever she wants. Iggy is saying whatever he wants. Coderre is saying whatever he wants. Kennedy is saying whatever he wants.
In other words, it just doesn't seem as though anybody in the party really cares what the leader has to say about all this. That might be the most troubling sign for the leader and the party, if you ask me.
