Are we making too many assumptions about Rob Ford?

There seems to be the feeling around town that Rob Ford is in hiding. Recent comments, by once stark allies seem to imply that the Mayor maybe laying low due to recent defeats. However are we just making assumptions about his leadership style? Rob is an active contributor and host on Newstalk1010. We know that he is active in the community. Ordinary citizens in the suburbs maybe aware of this and overall still like the Mayor. Maybe what Rob Ford needs to do is show his vision and compromise on some of his plans. We know that Rob Ford cares about the city, but since council seems to be pitted against him he may need to find some common ground for now.
