I'd say the more likely result is that the NDP will quickly lose credibility due to rookie mistakes and internal battles between the neophyte Quebec majority and the veteran ROC minority. It's a recipe for disaster. Although they've unfortunately lost a lot of their better MPs, the Liberals may be able to claim back quasi-Official Opposition status in English Canada with MPs that are more familiar, more popular with the media, and more reassuring to middle-class voters. They were lucky enough to keep at least one MP in every province but Alberta, so they won't drop out of sight completely anywhere (except Alberta).

It's also possible that the NDP will be successful. Not betting on it at this point, however.
