Michael Ignatieff joins University of Toronto faculty.
Unfortunately for Dr. Ignatieff, the prime ministerial trial balloon has already sunk without trace. Not even Earnscliffe and the CBC combined could sell Canadians on the idea of a Harvard professor who hasn't lived here for nearly 30 years as Canada's next greatest prime minister ever.
Foreign Affairs will be opening up once Pierre Pettigrew and his fabulous hairdo retire. And he has his pick of safe seats in Toronto to run in.
But too bad for him that he'll be coming back home to sit on the opposition backbenches!
