The Liberal party of Ontario recently elected a new leader of the party, Kathleen Wynne. A MPP representing Don Valley West riding of Toronto, she beat out Sandra Pupatello in Saturday night voting. There are some similarities with Wynne and another Female party leader, Kim Campbell. Both women were elected through a party convention and after the previous leaders had to resign under a cloud of failure and difficulty. Wynne became the Liberal leader after Dalton McGuinty resigned after difficulties with the teachers' union and the ORNGE scandal. In Campbell's case, she was elected party leader after Prime Minister Brian Mulroney resigned from office with two failed constitutional amendments (Charlottetown Accord and Meech Lake) and the despised GST. Kathleen Wynne needs to take notes from Kim Campbell's experience. If you are elected party leader after the previous guy had to leave in disgrace, be sure to define yourself apart from their failures. Kim Campbell failed to define herself from Mulroney's failures and did not get elected as Prime Minister. If Wynne can succeed defining her own leadership away from Dalton McGuitny, she will not repeat the failures of Kim Campbell.
