In a historic shift, the socialist New Democratic Party's "Community Clinic" Jack Layton is able to become Official Opposition leader by handing Stephen Harper a majority government.
I was not terrible on my election prediction. Went out on a limb to say the Liberals would narrowly hold on to Official Opposition status, and tanked on that (thanks a lot, Gilles Duceppe!) BUT I was right on calling the majority for the Tories.
Now for all my Conservative friends, as happy as I am about the majority win and as much as I advocated for it, it's not good for the country to have a Liberal Party as weak as it currently is; particularly with the NDP as the # 2 party in Parliament.
Hopefully, Liberals will learn their lesson that the stupid, pandering shift to the left is not want Canadians want, and they will return to becoming a sound, centrist party. The Liberals have taken a hit, but they are too well-established and the country needs a centrist party too much for them to be down forever.
In a move I'm sure to regret, I may have to become re-involved in Liberal politics. Pray for me.
