    Between now and 2015, I'd say there's a better chance of the Conservatives ripping themselves apart over abortion than there is of the Liberals and the NDP settling their differences and reaching some sort of electoral cooperation agreement.

    I'll also caution anyone who's looking at poll numbers and naming Trudeau PM that the Liberals also led the Conservatives in party preference polling immediately after Michael Ignatieff was named leader, and immediately after Stephon Dion won his leadership race.

    That's not to say that Trudeau will be as big a flop as those two, but he had a pretty easy walk to victory and is enjoying his honeymoon. It won't last.

      already I see that video clip the Tories featured of Justin Trudeau taking off his shirt to feature predominantly in their attack ads. And of course they're going to try to dig up the ghosts of his father's famous dismissal of Western Canada.

      The biggest test for the Liberals and the NDP now is the Labrador by-election and the Nova Scotia provincial election.

      The Liberals are a favorite to win the Labrador by-election and better than even odds of defeating the incumbent NDP Nova Scotia government, but I wouldn't count out the NDP in either of those races yet.

      The Republican party is now an extreme right-wing party that is owned by their billionaire campaign contributors. - Bernie Sanders
