Mr Cameron's best slogan in the Tory leadership contest was: "Why put off what needs to be done?" Mr Clegg is, by some margin, the Lib Dem who would give the Tories and Labour the most trouble in 2009. He should be his party's next leader. So why put it off?So writes Matthew d'Ancona in this morning's Daily Telegraph.
I don't see the Liberal Democrats as being in such a deep crisis as he does, and he is kinder than I am about Mark Oaten, but I think he right about Nick Clegg.
The rumour tonight is that Chris Huhne is seeking support to stand. He would make an appealing candidate too.
