Looks like the backroom people might win this race. The common opinion among my media friends is that Dion’s momentum is the grassroots telling the party that they will not have their leader chosen. The old money choice, of course is Rae and he would seem to be Martin and Chretien’s unity candidate. However, Dion’s momentum may show that the grassroots won’t take it.
However, I’m hearing that Rae’s people may be making a deal with Ignatieff.
