If you think anything is certain in politics, consider Jim Prentice. Prentice entered last week’s election as Alberta’s Premier and left as, well, a big loser. He and his PC buddies thought they had it won right up until the votes starting pouring in orange. Even though he was re-elected to his riding, he announced that he would be retiring from politics. See? Big loser. However, mockery aside, Prentice may yet be a wanted man. He has worked for Stephen Harper, a major Canadian bank, the province of Alberta, and, by virtue of his connection to all three, big oil. So what is the ol’ fella going to do? Mere seconds passed after Jungle Jim called it quits before people started asking this question. The speculation was wild, frank, and irresistible. Without delay, we join the fray.
