Remember Brian Mulroney, the PM so many people loved to hate? We need to so we can learn a lesson from that period in our political history: there is a real danger in demonizing prime ministers to the exclusion of other longer-term political objectives. Mulroney's unctuous manner, his arrogance and his shameless toadying to the U.S. and to corporate CEOs made people crazed with anger at the man. I'll never forget the elderly woman who approached me on the street as I was leafleting during the free trade fight: "Someone should shoot him!!"
