Ben Mulroney, Liberal MP?

A metaphor about monkeys and my posterior comes to mind, but Don Martin says Bob Fife says he has a source (who heard from his cousin's sisters roommate) so you never know:

My friend Bob Fife, CTV’s Ottawa bureau chief, had a twinkle in his eye when he took to the airwaves Wednesday to suggest entertainment reporter Ben Mulroney, son of former Conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney, might be running for the federal LIBERALS in the next election.

That may be a stretch, but anything’s theoretically possible as this rare internecine Conservative battle continues to rage, despite Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s attempt to quell the backlash to his party’s Mulroney vilification efforts.

As much as I'd enjoy the sticking it to Harper angle here ... Ben Mulroney? Really? Why not Caroline? Does Brian have any other kids? Or maybe Mila wants to run?

God help me. I mean, yes, we're a big tent. As long as he keeps to the red carpet at the tent door, perhaps. Just don't ask me who I'm wearing on the way in.

If hes willing to turn around a tier two riding and make it Liberal, but all means, he should go ahead.

He also has his law degree. There's been no denial has there?

He is the second of four children born to former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mila Pivnicki Mulroney. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a major in history, from Duke University; he subsequently earned a Bachelor of Laws degree from Université Laval.

He was invited and attended the wedding of Justin Trudeau.

I agree with FP. No big favours but if he's willing... Maybe we could recruit Ben Harper somewhere down the road. If he hasn't noticed, there's a lot more hugging in the Liberal party ranks...

What? Does this mean we'll never have the Justin vs. Ben (vs. Keifer?) ultimate showdown?

Ben Mulroney is his own man. And I have to admit, after what the press did to his father, I have to think the guy has major cajones to have embraced the media as his career.

This wouldn't suprise me in the least.
