A little bit. Obviously calling for Liberals to rally around a leader that hasn't been elected yet is putting cart before horse. But this paragraph is OK:
Liberals know full well what they believe in. Our party demonstrated a solid record of social progress and fiscal responsibility during its last stint in power, legalizing same-sex marriage and balancing the budget for eight straight years. Our party is also the most principled when it comes to Canada’s existential questions such as national unity. One need not look any further than the “Bloc Orange” phenomenon currently plaguing the NDP to see that this is the case.
Also, the point about having a leader young enough to lead the party through several elections is a good one. So, maybe 1 1/2 paragraphs in 12 rise above crap. But I would hesitate to blow the kid off too thoroughly. He may be PM one day, and he'll need senators.
