Who should challenge Gordon?

Should Gordon Brown be challenged for the Labour leadership? And if so, who should challenge him? Have your say in my latest poll which can be found HERE.

The poll allows for multiple choices so if you think more than one person should challenge the Chancellor, you can vote accordingly. It will be interesting to see if the results differ greatly from more scientific surveys on this issue.

Update: If you think AN Other should challenge Gordon (and s/he is currently running third behind Straw and Miliblogger in the list of potential challengers) why not leave a message in the comments to say who you think that should be.

In answer to the comments about Meacher/McDonnell/Milburn, the question specifies a Cabinet-level challenge. Milburn is included because he has Cabinet-level experience, the other two (along with John Denham) are excluded because they don't.

As Frank Field has made an early day motion 670 for an English Parliament, he is the only person I would trust for PM.

Paul, why have you left out John McDonnell and Michael Meacher. I understand the former is garnering votes by the handful since the Trident debate. Is it just a deliberate attempt to p*** off the left.

Yes - made all the more confusing by your inclusion of Milburn, who is not a Cabinet Minister.

Then perhaps the 'no' option should be expanded (or another added) to allow for a non cabinet level challenger such as Denham/McDonnell/Meacher - a bald 'no' is only relevant to those who think there should be no challenge at all. I don't know of any party member who holds that opinion, whoever they support.
