From an Ignatieff skeptic - I'll admit - it had flair - and it got the message over - why do we need an election?
Because we have in government right now a group of people determined to take Canada away from what it does best - abandoning friends and commitments around the world - because it does not fit the ideological mindset.
That is reason number one for an election - and all four opposition parties will be using that argument - to some degree.
BUT - Ignatieff has to go further down the route he has described - and map out the policy steps needed to get us there.
That will be the differentiator - what makes people think - I want to vote for this party - again...

I think Michael Ignatieff laid down the message here...
We need another election because - every day this government stays in power - it drags us - in some incompetent but clandestine manner - away from the path we ought to be taking.
As to who are Canadians - we are the people other people want to be - we are the people that even Americans pretend to be - when they travel outside North America and find the Stars and Stripes causes people to turn away - they look around for a Maple Leaf to wear...
I know - I have seen it happen in many parts of the world.

Kady - you invariably keep us posted when there are changes to the PMO staff (Giorno Watch) - but you haven't been commenting on the Liberal backroom team.
Clearly something has changed - and I don't think that the loose cannons / party nags like me can take credit for it...
There's a sharpness and focus to the political tactics over the last week or two that seems to be at least 3 moves ahead of Harper and his gang.
So - who - or what has changed?

Interesting - reading under the numbers...

Undecided - 13% - if those folks a) decide and b) get out and vote - they have the numbers to swing this election either way.

The small-L liberals - like me - who are STILL waiting for Michael Ignatieff and his advisers to stop playing peekaboo and roll out those policies - which I THINK may be happening starting this week - unknown number - could be indicating to the pollsters either "undecided" or actually leaning to one of the other parties depending on whether they are in Quebec or ROC...
I am waiting for the Iggy Reveal - and the numbers that follow...

Is someone suggesting that the biblical "30 pieces of silver" actually amounts to only CDN$4 million according to current valuations?

Heavens Kady - I almost detected a note of scepticism - nay even of sarcasm - in your writing style today...
Just a guess here - but do you have some doubts about Jack's nimbleness and agility on the Beanstalk?

Funny this...I've been effectively ostracized by the Liberal Party for making the two points...
1) That it is appropriate in the current voting climate for a leader making a statement that - dependent upon the election results ad respective seat counts - I as leader of Party X - will determine if I can a) form a government and b) form some sort of arrangement / alliance with other parties whose policy principles correspond with at least some of my own..with the objective of producing stable sound government for this nation for Y number of months...

IF anyone had the cohones to make such a statement - he would get a 10% kick in the polls the next time they reported...
$10.00 says so...

Wow - "C02 emissions would eventually be eliminated. Over the long-run, the difference between two such approaches would be small." - Amazing - hide it away in the ground and we can all forget about it.
Using technology that isn't proven - in abandoned mines that who knows what we will find there...
I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop Hosertohoosier - and you to claim that there is no such thing as global warming anyway...

Dear Linda - aside from the fact that YOU are wrong - Kady has apologized here more than once - but more for the results of live blogging and its vulnerability than being factually inaccurate.
Now - if you have an example where Kady - who does her homework - actually had a fact wrong - and didn't correct it or apologize after - fine - but if you don't - two words for you - Pipe Down!

Yup - close your eyes and imagine that squeaky little voice saying - "S-H Go home! S-H go home!"...
