Joe Clark’s portrait

What a wonderful, wonderful painting. It’s distinctive, it’s plain, it depicts Clark on his feet in the Commons, which he so dearly loved from his first day there. I was critical of Clark for almost every day of his second act as a parliamentarian, but so what. This is his day. Kady is liveblogging. I’ll get an image up here as soon as I can.

UPDATE: Newsworld cut away as soon as Clark started speaking. Because what you want to cover is everything except the guy the event is about.
