I should note that Danielle Takacs is running for the Liberal Party of Canada nomination up in Brant. Danielle used to blog at galloping around the golden horseshoe before deciding to jump into the political ring rather than merely snarking about it. She is to be commended for that, as are the others of our ilk who have taken the same plunge. Its a tough job, and there is no guarantee of success. Danielle certainly has my support.
PS. I hear that Danielle is the only LPC potential in Brant, but that the party has been dragging its feet on a nomination meeting. While nobody can doubt the value of a star candidate, sometimes its better to go with the soldiers who are willing to fight for you today.
