If Harper stepped down now, news would be filled with stories about a possible dire untold health problem because the action would not fit the man. This story is a 'what if scenario' straight out of Paikin's imagination (maybe the Pope gave him the idea), not a piece written about 'whispers' because there is hardly a serious heavyweight contender in the CPC to take him on as replacement at this point. And the Emperor currently seems to have complete control over his political alliance. He is too old to start a new career in hockey (his only other passion other than politics). The numbers just don't add up for Paikin on this one. I'm sure Paikin enjoyed writing it though, as much as I enjoyed reading it
