Never mind the transition team. What about the cabinet?
It's not just a question of who will be in Alberta Premier Select Jim Prentice's minimalist new pre-general-election Progressive Conservative cabinet -- Ken Hughes, c'mon down! -- but who won't be.
It's also a question of who gets stiffed, regionally speaking: Calgary, Edmonton, or the countryside -- which has already gone over to the Wildrose insurgency?
Cabinet-making before the high-profile candidates Prentice has promised can step up to the plate is a serious political problem for the new Tory leader, made no easier by his promise to keep the size of his cabinet small.
