The one advantage of the stronger minority (from the Liberal perspective) is they don't have to march as many people out to avoid defeating the government. They can afford to leave most of their people in and let them vote against the government... although I'm sure they'll count noses very carefully to be sure to keep the government alive.

It would be funny if the Liberals thought they had their math correct and then a few Conservatives don't show up. There will be some extended trips to the bathroom for some Liberals :)


LOL.

What if Gerard Kennedy shot up the middle and won like Dion did?

Then it comes down to, are Canadians familiar enough with him? I don't think so, but there'd be no mud to throw at him directly, rather than just the Liberal brand like they did in 2005/6.

Nah, his support is likely quite weak these days. After all it was his decision to support Dion with his delegates and we all know how well that turned out. Doubt he'll even run again.

Then he's the perfect "compromise" candidate no?

Hmm, that's a good point, we all know how well Harper did against the last 'compromise candidate'.

I don't know who would be best for the CPC to go againts. But I do know this, I would like to give Bob Rae the screws in an election. I find him to be so smug, and everytime I see Bobby Boy on TV do that stupid chuckle I want to jump threw the TV.

Plus I think the CPC would sweep ontario with Bob at the healm of the LPC. The only problem is the PPG love Bobby boy, and they would defend him till the death.
