Doug Ford and Jason Kenney are chewing up scenery in the middle of the stage; Stephen Harper continues to play a big role behind the scenes; and Maxime Bernier is loudly offering a populist alternative to the knuckle draggers in the front row.

So Scheer, in addition to convincing middle-of-the-road Canadians that he is moderate and personable enough for the job, also has to make sure that he, and not one of those other personalities, is the real leader of Canada's angry white men.

It's not easy, but it is not supposed to be easy to become prime minister, and Scheer can count himself fortunate that he even has a real shot, given the long history of Canadians giving majority prime ministers a second mandate.
