The Great Debate
More importantly, it was how the Dems will stand a chance of winning in 2008. When Jimmy Smits' character lashed out at Hawkeye for labelling (libelling???) him a Liberal -- oooh, my heart stopped.
In Canada today, Jack Layton will supposedly conclude whether or not to remain supportive of the government, thereby stalling an election. When the CAW is telling the NDP leader what to do, it's pretty damn difficult to say no. Heads sez keep your party faithful, Tails sez break out of the labour ties of old, and forge a political future of unofficial party status. Your move, sir!
So, a CPC government would not last long, people would see how they would really behave in government and later the 'New" Liberals would be returned after Harper faces his own non-confidence vote.
So in other words, they had better becarefull what they wish for. This could be the chance to get a PR system implemented at the federal level, since I think many CPc would also go for it.
This will be a fun couple of weeks.
