Wednesdays with @Kady replay: Rae's out early, MPs vote late

There's always plenty to chat about with Kady O'Malley.

On Wednesdays, CBCNews.ca's Politics blogger convenes a "people's caucus" to discuss and debate the issues of the week, so far.

Up today:

- Bob Rae shocks supporters and foes alike by bailing on the 2013 Liberal leadership race

- Auditor General Michael Ferguson's office tables its long-awaited audit of how Parliament spends its budget

- MPs brace themselves to pull an expected all-nighter, voting on a torrent of budget bill amendments
