Deep thought

I know when I think of possible neutral and non-partisan advisers on political and constitutional issues, Rainer Knopff is one of the first names that comes to mind.

Update: Chrystal goes through the full list of Harper's GG advisors, and the picture doesn't look to be a pretty one. That said, I'm not sure there's necessarily a contradiction between Dimitri Soudas' spin today and the instructions actually given to the advisors. Instead, the problem is that the phrase "without partisanship" surely looks rather different to Harper appointees and ideological conservatives than to the public at large - and the Cons' track record doesn't exactly suggest that they have any interest in correcting for the difference.
