Hamilton’s Mayor Fred Eisenberger and Canada’s Liberal leader Stephane Dion seem to be leading rather parallel lives — at least they have in my strange and warped mind. Both guys, in their mid fifties, defied the odds and were narrowly voted into their current positions of power at around the same time in the Fall of 2006. Everyone knows of Dion’s penchant for all things environmental, but it was a leftie grassroot movement that boosted Eisenberger, the once Conservative candidate of elections past to embrace green things and defeat the pro-development incumbant Larry diIanni. Since assuming their roles of leadership both Eisenberger and Dion have had a great deal of difficulty projecting qualities that leaders need in order to lead. At this point, both seem to be out of their leagues, more suited for bureaucratic jobs as opposed to public positions. Both seem to have expiry dates that’ll see them out of the scene after their respective upcoming election races.syndication purposes this was more than ideal to take a local concept and turn it into a national one. — Oh, and don’t forget to vote for my cartoon.
