Having just won a safe seat from would be coalition partners the NDP, leader Mike Ignatieff is trying to make his case that the next general election is going to be a two horse race between the Liberals and Tories. He is trying to put some distance between himself and the Dippers. I recall Liberal activist Jane Taber recently trying to make the point that the Canadian public is not afraid of a Liberal-NDP coalition, but why then are the Liberals so eager to run away from it?
After the election Iggy Tweeted "Tonight shows the LPC is the only party that can replace the Harper gov't and deliver real, progressive change for Canadians." I replied to his Tweet: "Losing a bellweather seat in the region that elected half your caucus really shows that you have a shot at forming government."
