The coalition hatched by Layton and Dion would have seen a Liberal PM but the Liberal appointed GG rejected it as an option when she porogued.
Then Dion was dumped super quick, (without any kind of in party election) and his replacement Rejects the idea of being PM in January 2009!

The Ignatieff Liberals have given Stephen Harper and the Conservatives a clear route to a majority government. Here’s how it will happen, unless Harper does something stupid again.
To achieve a majority, Harper needs to win seats in Quebec. He failed to get his majority in the last election, in part, because he alienated Quebec voters who then supported the Bloc.
