IGNATIEFF IN THE LEAD; JOE VOLPE CAMPAIGN AS GOOD AS DEAD

Delegate totals with 256/467 meetings reporting in:

IGNATIEFF 840
RAE 533
DION 468
KENNEDY 447
DRYDEN 133
VOLPE 121
BRISON 102
HALL-FINDLAY 29
UNCOMMITTED 58

The good news for Ignatieff is he's running about 30%. The bad news is that everyone else is running at about 70%. And you need 50% plus one to win.

My observation is that Gerard Kennedy has come back quite a bit and is back in the running with Rae and Dion based on these totals.

We've been talking about dead Liberals all week. Look at the numbers. Those deceased Liberals haven't helped Joe Volpe one bit. Let that be a lesson to you, Joe: in order to win a leadership vote, make sure your supporters are all alive! Enough said.

As a well-known dead Liberal once said, the universe is unfolding as it should.
