Ignatieff’s image in need of repair

Re: ‘Liberal Express’ Bus Breaks Down, July 14, 2010.

What a fitful start Michael Ignatieff’s cross-Canada tour has made, with the tour bus breaking down 100 kilometres outside Ottawa. With travel plans on hold, the Liberal leader dismissed the symbolism of this unexpected delay: “Sometimes a bump in the road is just a bump in the road. It’s not a metaphor for anything.”

Try telling that to Joe Clark, after his leadership image got skewed by tales of airline luggage lost in transit.
