Politics is an odd business.
Just ask Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
A few weeks ago, the media was suggesting he was almost a sure bet to win a majority government.
Now, after a few polls show his political star isn't rising as fast as anticipated, the Toronto Star is openly musing about Harper's possible successors.
That's a bit premature.
But what the heck, if somebody were to ask me who should replace Harper, I'd say Industry Minister Maxime Bernier.
Bernier has done a great job in cabinet and more importantly, he is a true blue conservative.
And one of my female friends once described Bernier as "handsome, tall and charming and well-dressed," and added she was "tired of being governed by ugly people! Bring back the JFKs! Bring back the John Turners! Bring back the Bibi Netanyahus!"
So there's another reason to support Bernier.
