What our National Opinion Leaders want in a Prime Minister

Again on Stephen Harper, Paul Wells opines on what our nation's opinion leaders find important.

"...it is entirely impossible to be bland enough to please the nation's opinion leaders, in this case a bored weekend Globe online editor."

I'd like to add that what they really want our Prime Ministerial candidates to be is male, European descent, a lawyer, attractive to cameras, and Liberal. As hard as it is for a Westerner to become Prime Minister, it would be impossible for a Torontonian.
