Anyone watching TV or listening to the radio this first Sunday morning of the campaign won't be force-fed a bunch of ravenous Liberals.
That's because Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion has decided to hit the media-interview circuit before the rally circuit.
His team block-booked him yesterday, offering him up for a one on one with whichever news organizations wanted him.
The interview offers came before reporters even knew what the schedule would be for the first day.
Dion made it clear in his first scrum that even though he has been the party leader for 20 months, Canadians don't know him well enough to consider him as a possible prime minister.
He believes the campaign will change that. Thus the early barrage of get-to-know-me interviews.
The rallying Liberals can wait.
