Would anyone else actually want to lead the Lib Dems at the moment?

Clegg has proved to be one of the most inept party leaders in British political history. However, if he goes could somebody else clean up the mess he's left behind? To be honest I don't see any senior Lib Dem who could make the party credible again.

The root of the many gripes that I have regarding the Lib Dems apply to much of UK politics, namely a tendency to see grabbing power for it's own sake as the main objective. It's certainly the main complaint I always had about New Labour.

The Lib Dems got themselves some power, but that in itself has not made them credible. In fact the concessions they made to get that power have caused them to lose credibility quite badly.
