As one of the Campbell administration's most politically astute cabinet ministers, Rich Coleman has oft been discussed as a potential provincial Liberal leadership candidate. Opinions have waxed and waned over whether he'd actually make a bid for that job should Premier Gordon Campbell step aside. So, given all that, we'd like to draw your attention to the introductory video for Mr. Coleman's 2010 fundraiser - which took place on October 28. Its narrator opens the video by stating, "Anyone who meets Rich Coleman can see right away that he really likes people. When they get to know him, they learn that he really likes to help. His goal is to make B.C. a better place for the people who live here and he gets things done - for families, for survivors, for people in need and for first responders." The video then ends with this refrain: "Rich Coleman believes in the people of British Columbia. And he's helping to make B.C. a better place to live, work and play. With him, working on our behalf, the future of our province is bright." Fascinating, eh?
