Does Danny have them all cowed?

Craig McInnes of the Vancouver Sun asks a good question – make that a very good question  - about the federal party leaders (Jack, Ig, and Elizabeth) and other provincial premiers:

It's not that surprising that Williams' parochial vision is wildly popular back home on the Rock, given his success in turning Ottawa-bashing into a profitable enterprise. What surprises me is how timid our federal politicians have been in taking him on. Two days after the announcement of the $130-million settlement with AbitibiBowater, none of the leaders of any federal parties and no other premiers have criticized either Williams for getting us into this mess or the federal government for picking up the tab. [Emphasis added]

Does the bull of St. John's have them all completely cowed?

It would certainly seem so.
