Paul Martin, Finance Minister or Vote Red, Go Black

It was nice to hear the CBC news pull a quote from Paul Martin on the matter of the Conservatives putting this country back in the red. For reasons that are entirely understandable, Martin sort of went to ground the past few years after his ’06 defeat. If he can re-emerge and do so as “former finance minister Paul Martin” it has the potential to really help the Liberal brand. Here’s an opportunity for the grits to own fiscal prudence. It’s the sort of inversion of party perceptions that the British Tories are attempting with their “Vote Blue, Go Green” campaign on the environment. This time the Liberals can make it “Vote Red, Go Black” (as in ink).
