I wonder if HarProrogue remembers how MacBeth turned out?

My dearest coz, I pray you, school yourself; but for your husband,
He is noble, wise, judicious, and best knows
The fits o’ the season. I dare not speak much further;
But cruel are the times when we are traitors.
And do not know ourselves; when we hold rumour.
From what we fear, yet know not what we fear,
But float upon a wild and violent sea
Each way and move. I take my leave of you;
Shall not be long but I’ll be here again.
Things at the worst will cease, or else climb upward
To what they were before. My pretty cousin,

The Tragedy of Macbeth. Act IV Scene II
William Shakespeare (1564–1616).

The thin ranks are exposed in this article aren't they? Anyone of these will drive open the fault lines in the Conservative Party.

Jim Prentice

Prentice may be too far outside the Conservative Party mainstream on social issues, however. He voted in favour of same sex marriages and is pro-choice


However, Prentice may prove divisive among the grassroots for his PC party origin and his social liberalism. He also is clearly tied to Harper, and if the "Harper team"; is rejected, Prentice may be a casualty as well.

Jean Charest

Charest's social liberalism and championing of Quebec's interests would likely turn off a wide swath of the Tory base in the West.

Peter MacKay


However, his controversial pact with David Orchard at the 2003 PC leadership, and the tensions from the Conservative Party merger that follow may have put too many Conservatives' noses out of joint for MacKay to win this round.

Tony Clement


However, he does carry baggage from the Ontario Conservatives, including the hidden $5.6-billion deficit under Ernie Eves.

Should be fun at the Harper house this Christmas.

The speculation is fun but ridiculous too. Moore? I guess Canada's ready for the first gay conservative leader (baird would be his beard) but he's too entrenched in Harper's closet. But hey, look at the girly photos on his laptop!

It was interesting to see he wasn't in there but then I can't think of a Bard Baird Beard quote.
