The big assumption, Parliament's return tomorrow will bring a Liberal assault on the Guergis front. This isn't a statement on the seriousness, but really the Liberals might be wise to put Guergis on the back burner and set an issue orientated return.
The Guergis story is guaranteed to be a focus tomorrow, as the media asks further questions and more is digested. This simple fact means the Liberals don't need to draw further attention with a barrage of accusations and demands in Question Period. A question or two, but when it comes to the high profile queries, less gotcha, more "kitchen table". It would appear the other opposition parties are using Guergis to pivot, introducing more substantive considerations. I'm not sure the Liberals want to be the sole opposition party aggressively chasing this story.
This isn't to say Guergis isn't important, it clearly requires "follow up". However, the whole matter has a gossipy aspect, which has provided great "fun", but hardly a vote mover, nor anything that improves the Liberal brand. Two weeks out from Montreal, and already you see the high signal considerations fade, as the Ottawa fog returns, superficial, reactive politics returns. For the Liberals, we need to stick to our supposed game plan, and that means not getting distracted by daily revelations, but concentration on the wider internal challenges. Guergis is clearly relevant, but I don't see any "payoff" for the Liberals, it doesn't address what ails. Couple that fact with the realization that the story has outside traction regardless, focus isn't required.
What might be noteworthy, if Ignatieff rose tomorrow and DIDN'T refer to Guergis.
