Once touted as a star leadership candidate himself, when Alan Rock endorsed Stephane Dion just before the first ballot voting in Montreal last month it was a big boost of early momentum for the Dion campaign. Could a Rock comeback now be in the works?
In an entry on CTV’s Politics Blog, David Akin reports a comment from a Liberal source that says Wajid Kahn did the party a favour by opening-up the Liberal nomination in his Toronto area-riding. An analysis shared by and large by the Liberal blogsphere as well. But what I found interesting was one of the names the source put forward as a possible Liberal candidate there:
“He's done the party a huge favour by opening up a Toronto seat for a high profile candidate. We were having problems finding a spot in the event nobody retired,” my Liberal source says. “Could be Rae, Kennedy, Findlay or someone else. Maybe even Rock."
First time I've heard that particular rumour. Could it be time for a comeback for the 59-year-old former UN Ambassador and cabinet minister?
