Gormley leaves door open for FF to name third Taoiseach - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

Fianna Fail TD Mary O'Rourke is understood to have angered both Mr Cowen's supporters and critics with her advice that the Taoiseach's wife, Mary Cowen, should persuade him to resign.

"That went down like a bucket of sick," a Fianna Fail source said.

Let's not forget Cowen was finance minister until 2007 before he became Prime Minister.

He's presided over the entire disaster. He needs to go.

No one disputes that - not even FFers.  However asking his wife to put pressure on him IS a bit sick - typical of O'Rourke's mumsy approach to politics.  She wants to run for President as a sort of Queen Mother, I think.
