About Mr. Ignatieff's frank statements of late, Mr. Kennedy said, "Each of us has to find a way to express ourselves.
"Maybe certain weeks we'll all have challenges. I prefer not to see it as a characteristic, per se. . . “
A golden opportunity to take a shot at the perceived frontrunner, and yet Kennedy takes the high road and essentially defends Ignatieff. Obviously the question was asked in the hopes Kennedy would take the bait and slam Ignatieff. The fact Kennedy resisted demonstrates integrity, that he wouldn’t use the opportunity for personal gain. It is refreshing to see Kennedy isn’t so political that his first instinct is a calculation. Kudos for keeping the debate high signal.
