Ambassador to Canada: There's a title that screams "milquetoast." I only wish Ambassador Paul Cellucci (who actually looks and speaks like Bobby DeNiro's kid brother -- really, look here) had been this forceful when he was governor of Massachusetts. Nonetheless, his comments are on target, and no doubt Bush-endorsed. Canada has been rude, supercilious, and flat-out idiotic in its response to our Iraq policy. Cellucci's message, that trade with Canada will take a back seat to our national security (a thinly veiled threat, at best), should scare the toque off Jean Chretien -- if he isn't already too deluded by self-righteous posturing to read between the lines.
