Playing with fire

Reading this piece today I couldn't help but be a little nervous. Because if I've learned anything from following politics over the past few years, it's that making friends with Danny Williams is like staring at the sun. Ask Paul Martin and Steve Harper, I think they'll back me up on that.

Mr. Dion and Mr. Williams met Saturday in St. John's and discussed several issues, including equalization and the province's fisheries, after which Mr. Williams said Mr. Dion is a man he can trust.

The pair said they hadn't intended to reach any formal agreements, but rather open a dialogue that would continue if Mr. Dion is elected prime minister.

Well thank-god for that. I know the enemy of my enemy is my friend and all that, just tread carefully is all I'm sayin. Sure, Danny will be your best friend for now, but just wait...

Seems a bit risk to me as well. That being said each time Danny Williams has a hissy fit, he loses credibility with the Rest of Canada so at least if he does pick a fight with Dion, Dion will probably gain elsewhere from it unless off course he backs down and gives in.
