Why Democrats Will Like Our Proposed New Ambassador

Note the term proposed. The Globe and Mail reports that Frank McKenna has accepted the position, but CBC News reports that he hasn't decided yet.

If he does accept, though, once the Democrats look at his résumé I suspect they'll be very interested in talking to him.

Why? Because Frank McKenna pulled off every Western politician's dream in 1987, when he first ran for Premier of New Brunswick. Not only did he defeat the incumbent government, but his party won every seat in the Legislature.

Every. Single. Damn. Seat.

Lord knows the Democrats need a break, and 2006 isn't really that far off ...
