Matthew Fletcher -

The Conservatives attacked Rae because he's an identifiable person to attack. Once the NDP have a leader on Sunday, attacks from the Conservatives on that person will start shortly thereafter. Possibly on Monday.

I don't think the attacks on Rae prove that the Conservatives fear a Liberal revival most. I think it shows they know that attack ads work, and ads such as that, against any opposition, is party of their strategy of staying in power. As much as the Globe would prefer to find signs of a Liberal revival, or at least the possibility of one, this is not that.
