I've always liked Monte Solberg.

Put some Conservative names up, not just a bunch of old Pcers.


I dunno...but I think a good number of Canadians would like a more PC style government...it happens all the time anyway. Liberal's claim to be in the center and now Harper is sliding there too...most Canadian's just want to vote for centerists and let 'em stay there, instead of voting for lefties/right-wingers and watching em run to the middle when they get into power...it's just us as a people...

Mike Harris would never win Ontario. Never.

Quebec & the Maritimes won't accept a Common Sense Revolution.

Yeah, that what they said about Bob Rae. Twice. And look at him now, basically the leader of the Liberal party in waiting, and looking like the most principled person in the whole party.

I love Mike Harris it is too bad he gets a bad rep for things that are not really his fault. The common sense revolution allowed Ontario to get back on its feet after the rea days. I doubt Mike gets into federal politics though his political life seems to be in the past for him. You could say the same for Preston as well.

I think Harris could win Ontario. We just need another Preem or two until even his most vehement haters have stopped bitching about him.

Is Bernard Lord considered a red or blue tory?

Verner's an interesting name for in a few years. A Quebecois conservative woman, trusted as a top Quebec lieutenant. How's her english?

Mr. Harper is a young man an apt and otherwise ideal leader - I'll wager that he has a long tenure as PM ahead of him and - as such - any talk of who is next is quite moot...

Bernier baby! English isn't a big deal. Like the Franco's say, you don't learn English, you catch it. I'm a big Bernier fan.

I'd also like to see Rona run.

Prentice would give a good run at it. I think he'd be a good leader too.

MacKay might go for it but I think he has to much baggage.

I'd love to see Mike Harris as PM, however, he also has a lot of baggage and can't speak any French (plus the so-cons would never support his twice-divorced, gay marriage-approving butt).

Lord might go for it but it depends on if he runs federally soon or not. If not a lot of people will see him as not willing to earn it. If he waits to get active only when it looks like a new leader is on the way and not when the party needed him the most (the last two elections and the next one) he might look opportunistic. I say if Lord runs in the next election that means he'll be going for leader someday.

Her English isn't the greatest (a little better than Dion) however, she's rather socially liberal so that might hamper her appeal to the base.

I'd like to see her go for it though!

I can't believe that many people want MacKay to be leader!

Personally, I don't think he has good leadership skills.

Are people answering MacKay because they THINK he'll be the next leader or because they WANT him to be the next leader?

Leader? We don't need to be talking about a new leader. Harper is 49 tomorrow, and is still a young person in politics. I think he will have a nice run as PM and leader of the Conservative Party.
