McKenna to Seek Top Job?

Though I'm hardly one to give into hearsay or gossip, but with this one I just can't resist. Sources close to the former premier of New Brunswick, Frank McKenna say that he is seriously considering running for Liberal party leader if and when Stephan Dion steps (or is shoved) aside.

Recognizing that the position is not currently open, and not wanting to create further disunity in the party, McKenna's consideration would only come if Dion, for some reason were to leave the position.

Personally, I'd prefer it if the Liberals just died and the NDP took over for them but realistically, that's not going to happen any time soon. This is 2008, not 1988.

So, with that in mind I welcome the possibility of McKenna making a return. He would be, after all, the first real New Brunswicker to hold the position of Prime Minister (we can hardly count Bennet as a New Brunswicker after all).
