Dion's Destiny

As predicted, the media is bending itself out of shape fawning over newly elected Liberal leader Stephane Dion.

Columnists and pundits from the leading dailies seem certain Dion will win the next federal election.

Mind you, many of these columnists and pundits were equally certain not so long ago that Stephen Harper would never win a federal election.

Media Update: I will be discussing Stephane Dion's victory tonight on The World Tonight with Michael Smyth on CKNW radio at approximately 10:00 PM EST.

By the way, there's still time to vote on my special online blog poll.

It is too early to tell, but I think Dion could win. He is no Paul Martin, if anything he is more like Chretien who was often underestimated unlike Martin who was overestimated. If I were a Tory, I would be worried.

Miles - guess it's a good thing you aren't a Tory.

It is time to take your Red/Pink thong off.
Something is obviously too tight. You are not
Thinking clearly.
Your one sided pontificating is too much.

Anonymous 1 and 2 - You can think all you want the Tories will easily steamroll to another victory, but I've watched enough Canadian elections and I have seen where most Canadians sit and most sit close to the centre, not on the right and not on the left. As long as Dion as he has so far, stays firmly in the centre, he should have the advantage. If he drifts too far to the left, then Harper should be able to pull it off, but don't count on him doing that.
