Harvard University scholars have noted with sadness that their former colleague -- Michael Ignatieff -- suffered a devastating political defeat last week, when Canadian voters rejected the Liberal Party he led. The Boston Globe reported that Ignatieff was "a superstar" during his years in Cambridge, well-liked by students, professors and the popular press as well. But in the Canadian election campaign, his years at Harvard were constantly used against him. One irony is that in a quote from Ignatieff's past that was used against him, he said that, if he lost, he would seek to return to Harvard. In fact, he accepted a post-election job at the University of Toronto.
