Gary Doer to be new US ambassador

The official word should be coming in the next hour or so. Of course, what is interesting will be to see how long Doer stays US ambassador, or if/when Layton steps down as NDP leader if he will go after the federal leadership. I can see Doer becoming the Frank McKenna of the NDP, the highly respected former Premier who everyone thinks would be a great party leader but for personal reasons never goes after the job.

Ps: I ended up going to Montreal after all, just in case any of you readers were following that sub-plot.

Isn't Doer a bit to the left of Harper..he was more like a liberal
