Christy Clark looking to jump to federal Liberals before being pushed out by caucus?

There is no question that Christy Clark’s days as leader of the BC Liberals are over, it’s only a matter of time and in what way it occurs and because of that, I got thinking about how Clark could try to save face after reading this note from a BC blogger who has unearthed many of her scandals:

Here is how much of a “conservative” Clark is….over the weekend I received several phone calls from federal Liberal strategists in Ottawa. These are friends I’ve had since I was there–over twenty years ago. Every single last one of them tells of how Mark Marissen, Clark’s ex-husband and others in her federal Liberal circle of influence have suggested that Christy would make a great leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. (see here)

Not that Christy Clark and her ex-husband Mark Marissen don’t probably believe that she has a shot at winning but the real benefit is that she can wriggle out without having to deal with a caucus revolt orchestrated by Kevin Falcon. This move to have her dethroned is very likely especially now that van Dongen departed leaving behind his BC Rail time-bomb (see here).

Strategically, it’s the best solution for the Liberals and their business backers who are freaking out at the prospects of a NDP government and would not only stop the bleeding to the BC Conservatives, it would probably end the hope of them winning any seats in next May’s election.

    Sounds like she would make a good leader of the LPC. Finish them off for good.

      The CPC ran an “infomercial” on how Boob Rae screwed Ontario as the Premier , do you think they will miss the opportunity to put out the facts about Clark’s past (BC rail etc.) ?

  2. Liz J Says:

    Christy Clark a good leader for the LPC? Why not, they’re going nowhere fast, she’d speed the process up. Have to wonder what planet some Liberal operatives are on.

    • BC Blue Says:

      Keep in mind that Marissen was campaign chair for Paul Martin’s leadership bid and co-chaired the Liberal’s BC campaign in two elections after and did the same for Dion.

    The Leafs will win back to back Cups before LPC let her even try to win the leader’s role.

    Strike 1, 2 and 3 . . she ne parlez pas le frenchy.

    Mort avant le game even starts.

    Is here some reason you don’t identify your source? Or does everyone know it is A.T.

  5. Hans Says:

    Well of course A.T. and Christy Clark do have a strong antipathy…

    Kevin Falcon will likely be sharpening the talons to usher a hasty palace revolt to stanch the bleeding to the BC Conservatives; but it may be a case of too little too late.

    We’ll see if the business backers follow suit to the BC Conservatives and then you will have full scale deflation of the BC LIEberal Zeppelin. The fire suppression and patch team will try to float this balloon a while longer…

    Well, Kristy the crook has always been an opportunist so it might be true. Although, anyone who thinks that having Kristy as part of they’re team, or as their leader (ha,ha,ha) would be some kind of political advantage is as delusional as she is.
