One of my favourite movies is "The American President" starring Michael Douglas and Richard Dreyfuss. During the election campaign, however, I could never pinpoint where I had heard Jack Layton's "I am running to be your Prime Minister". I don't know why I couldn't put my finger on it.
I finally have now though. Jack Layton was playing Richard Dreyfuss' character, Senator Bob Rumson.
Jack: "Yes, I am Jack Layton and I'm running to be your prime minister,"
Richard Dreyfuss: Bob Rumson: My name is Bob Rumson, and I'm running for President!
So there you have it. Oh. And the outcome was the same.
