Which is tomorrow, as it happens.
Why? Colleague Wells, currently on one of those special research missions, explains via email:
It’s the day people quit politics (Klein, Bouchard) or drop out of leadership races (Tobin, Rock). They spend Christmas with their families, Monday getting back to the office, Tuesday telling staff and then they have a presser on Wednesday.
Although there aren’t (yet) any unexplained press conferences scheduled for tomorrow, we’ve come up with the names of a few current politicians who may be penning their farewell speaking notes this afternoon. Feel free to suggest any other likely candidates – that’s what the blank space is for, after all.
