Dion does not have to go at all
As evidenced at Steve Valeriote's Far And Wide blog, there is an almost let-Elizabeth-May-into-the-debates movement rising up among Dion Liberals who are incensed at the party power brokers who hobbled Dion and undermined him every step of the way. The idea that an intelligent, decent man is being trashed by backroom wheelers and dealers who are leftovers from the broken Chretien-Martin factions, is particularly embittering for them. Chantal Hebert predicts that when Dion emerges from Stornaway there will be no one to guard his back, my guess is she's wrong. Dion has friends on the ground and in the blogosphere, and they're ready for a fight with those who betrayed Dion from the beginning of his leadership to now.
