Reporters' Notebook

He's back!

An update for all you folks wondering about "the man in the leather trenchcoat." I spotted him again this morning, only this time he's trying to blend in with a pilly, blue fleece jacket.

There he was, notebook in hand at the Kevin Taft news conference at the Strathcona seniors centre until I spotted him scanning the crowd. Then as before, he vanished. Swift and sleek (except for that jacket).

There really IS something about politicians and babies after all…. Liberal candidate Chris Kibermanis attended the Edmonton news conference with his two-year-old pig-tailed daughter Brooke. Looking a tad tired, Kibermanis confessed he had to give his wife a break.

"Oh?" I asked.

"Yeah, we have three kids under three. My wife had twins last month," he said.

"A BREAK!" I thought, "She needs a vacation!"

Kibermanis confessed the 2 a.m. feedings are a little tiring, especially during a campaign. The couple though has plenty of help from in-laws in the basement and down the street.

As for Brooke, she played on a seniors' card table with a Kevin Taft badge, out of the limelight for now.

One of the Liberals' three advance people minded Brooke, as Daddy stood up at the front with his leader. What do you think folks? Time for the kids to get into the picture?
