Iggy-Libs Tell Dion To Give Up His Seat In Quebec

Iggy's political pit bull in Quebec, Denis Coderre is ticking a lot of lifelong Liberals off with his strong arm tactics. It's being reported that even former Liberal Party Leader, Stephan Dion has been told to abandon the thought of running in the next federal election.

"The controversy is a harbinger for other difficulties in the Quebec wing of the party. Coderre has pressured some long-serving MPs with safe seats to resign, according to a number of Liberal sources. They told CBC News the party wants those seats for star female candidates as part of its renewal process.

The sources said former party leader Stéphane Dion, along with Bernard Patry, Raymonde Folco, and Lise Zarac, have all been asked to step aside." [...]

Several Liberals, who would not speak publicly, told CBC News that Coderre's style and approach to the Quebec election strategy is too divisive. They said the leader should strip Coderre of his responsibilities in Quebec before it threatens party unity. Coderre could not be reached for comment.

We have a similar conflict here, because Obama has asked the Governor of New York state not to run for reelection in 2010. Republicans say Obama is doing it, because Patterson is back. The real reason is that Patterson, promoted from Lt. Governor when Elliot Spitzer resigned, is not competent and has an approval rating to match.

There it looks like a bad idea.
