Party's over for political leaders

So. No Micheal Mojo then. After a week of euphoria in Fianna Fail circles, when they thought they had pulled it back from the brink, when its new clean-cut, clean-handed leader seemed to magic away the past 10 years with one simple word -- "sorry", they are now faced with a terrifying prospect.

This could be as good as it gets. Fianna Fail pulled the ultimate stroke last week in seeming to redesign the brand in one fell swoop, putting in a new leader who could apparently credibly announce that this was a new party. There was a feeling the soldiers were back in touch with their destiny and anything seemed possible.
