Subject: RE: BS: Canuck Politics
Yeah, Harper's smooth, sharp, articulate, and smart. He's definitely not a George Bush or a Ronald Reagan personality, he's right on top of his game mentally, and I doubt that the American public would go for him much if he ran down there...assuming he was an American. He's not the type they tend to go for.
Mind you, neither is Ignatieff. ;-) Even less so. And as for Jack Layton...well, they might like him okay if he moved about 400 miles farther to the Right! ;-D
Trying to explain Canadian politics to the average American, who probably is pretty uninterested anyway, and who thinks of "socialism" as a satanic plan to enslave people, is kind of like trying to explain algebra to a New Guinea headhunter (in my opinion)...or curling to a Martian. Hopeless.
