Order of operations

A comment on the CBC report on the PC Star Chamber's decision today:

Good. Let him run as an MHA first. I sense some political opportunism here. Perhaps he thought Dunderdale would cave, and he could ride Danny's coattails. Now he'll have to work for it. If he bails completely, we'll know it was opportunism. But, if he runs as MHA, he may be legit.
(Mkay. So running on Danny's coat-tails is a bad thing now?)

However, for the record, and for S. Penney's benefit:

The former leader of the PC Party, one Danny Williams, launched his campaign for the leadership of that party on December 5, 2000.

He was acclaimed as its leader on April 7, 2001.

Then he was elected to the House of Assembly, for the first time ever, in the Humber West by-election on June 19, 2001.

In other words, at the time he ran for leader of the PC Party, he was in pretty much the same position, insofar as the Penney Principle goes, as one Brad Cabana.
