Yes, please

"Will Hargrove run against Flaherty?" That would be a good one. A blogger can hope:
"Big news is very serious discussion about Buzz Hargrove, a Martin Liberal, running against [Finance Minister] Jim Flaherty on income trusts, jobs and especially Flaherty's demonizing of [Premier] Dalton McGuinty and Ontario," said one party-goer.

Taking on Mr. Flaherty would be ideal for Mr. Hargrove, as the minister's Oshawa, Ont., riding is full of auto workers. Remember in the last election, Mr. Hargrove, the Canadian Auto Workers president and an NDPer, famously supported Paul Martin and controversially encouraged his members to vote strategically to elect Liberals.
To knock off Flaherty would be huge...just huge. And drawing such an opponent? Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy...
