Nick Clegg?

He's been an MEP and has a column in the Guardian.

But against that, he's got dreamboat looks and an MA in Anthropology. And my fellow backer of winning leadership candidates Iain Dale reckons Nick could could nick the top LD spot:

"The LibDems needs their own Cameron and Nick Clegg is the one that fits the bill. He looks the part, he's got the experience (despite only being elected in 2005 he has gained good experience as an MEP - if that's not an oxymoron) and he's got the charisma and sense of humour. ... Nick Clegg is the only one who, as a Conservative, I would not look forward to fighting."

Tim Mongomerie also goes for Nick, enthusing "he really does have Cameron-like star quality".

With Iain and Tim both on board, that's the Tory blogovote pretty well sewn up. But the bookies have him as 12/1 outsider, so we wonder what the LDs think.

We will investigate further.

I suspect that Clegg is far to smart to run for the leadership yet. He (and the other orange book types) would be much better advised to allow Campbell to take the job for 4 years.
