Former Canadian Alliance leader Stephen Harper wins Conservative Party of Canada's leadership race; He got more than 56% support, which is damned good.

Harper seems like a good choice. He was my MP for a while. Seemed to do a good job. Very vanilla, unlike former Alliance leader Stockwell Day who...well, let's just forget him.

The one problem with this choice (and I quite like Harper ... he has principles) is that now it looks like the party merger between the Alliance and the Progressive Conservatives was really a takeover by the Alliance and their leader. If the Liberals can escape the current scandals plaguing them, they may very well pick up many votes which would have otherwise gone to the PCs.

Harper now has a few short months to shift the perception of his party as an opposition to a competent government-in-waiting. I don't think they'll do it this election.

Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo.
But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie,
How it got here I haven't a clue.

I generally lean Liberal in my political beliefs, but I've had about enough of their policies over the last 11 years. Stephen Harper has three months to convince me that he's not wishy-washy and that he deserves my vote.

Canadian politics is depresssing, Three parties and I dont' feel comfortable with a single one.

Mostly I lean Liberal or NDP. But I've never liked Paul Martin at all (could be worse could have been Sheila Coops) and I used to like Jack Layton but recently he doesn't seem like a leader I want. Which leaves Stephen Harper of the PC, wow, even in desperate times I don't think I can vote PC.

If Chretien was running, I'd vote for him for the 46th time, better then the choices now.

I think you could remove the country from your statement and it would hold true for most people in the world. I've lost count of the amount of times I've been standing in a booth thinking "Right, which one of these clowns will fuck things up the least."

HUA! A salute to you, AWArulz, for wearin' the mean greens. Especially over there at a tough station like Korea. Sure trumps my li'l ol' 6-year gig in the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Commo leads the way!
