the first ballot is in and it seems that the delegates agree by a slim margin that belinda stronach is better looking as a brunette.
just kidding....did anyone watch the speeches?....ken dryden was great!
i am really torn about who would be the best for the liberal party.
a lot of people like iggy and i think that he could be the daring choice that takes the country in a new direction...he might also take the liberal party down in flames.
bob rae terrifies me....with few seats west of manitoba, the liberals need ontario overwhelmingly to win.....i dont think rae can deliver.
gerrard kennedy is a good manitoba boy and has charisma and gave a great speech today, but if you cant fluently speak french, you cant be prime minister....for me, it is his only fault...he might be able to deliver some western seats, could win in ontario and the marritimes....since quebec basically doesnt count much anymore, maybe it isnt such a big issue.
stephane dion is a decent, honourable guy who i think canadians could trust, especially up against the arrogant car salesman harper...he is likeable and intelligent.....his speech today sucked....i wonder if he can deliver anything in quebec though, being the clarity act guy.
joe volpe's video before his speech looked like a grade 9 student put it together....it was like being in his basement watching his travel slides as his kid in the next room blared tom cochrane on his stereo.
anyways what are your thoughts on the leadership race?....i am interested to hear what people think from other regions...who would do best in your province?
