Missing in Action

Where, oh where is the Puffin King?
By all logical understanding, the Liberals shouldn't be stalled; they should be in upward flight. They are not. Have they been handicapped by Mr. Ignatieff's strange reticence on policy?

There is something, however, in the Liberals' approach that suggests that, maybe from their long habit of being in power, they expect it will be theirs again simply by default.

Maybe that's why Mr. Ignatieff has had, in terms of visibility and profile, so relaxed and ruminative a summer.
