The Fogh is Lifting

Does this name ring a bell? Jaap de Hoop Scheffer? Nope? Didn't think so. Though, that man fills a pretty important position, the Secretary General of NATO. And apparently he's leaving that post soon. And the person that seems to be the favourite to replace him is Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. However, Defence Minister Peter Mackay seems to be in the mix too. Now I know at least one person who would root for Mackay to take the position, drumroll please.....
Elizabeth May! See, she's already committed to running again in Mackay's riding of Central Nova, and with Iggy already committing a Liberal candidate in the next election there, her chances of coming out on top are very slim. So if Mackay leaves and goes to Europe, or wherever NATO is headquartered at, the riding will be Mackay-clan free, which hasn't been the case in a good decade plus. And speaking of Iggy, he was in the news twice today, once for phone calling Brian Mulroney cus it's his b-day and another is that Iggy and top Liberals are meeting in their Quebec provincial lair discussing party tactics for an upcoming election if that happens.
