OMG. Dion is in very good position to win !

It will be between Rae and Dion. My guess is that Ignatieff may give his support to Rae to block Dion. It would be so bad for the liberals to have Dion... and I would lose 20$ !


Hehe

Wouldn't Dion just be a gift for the Tories? Or probably keep them alive longer possibly gaining more confidence with Canadians. I can't really picture him becoming a prime minister. The other two rae and the guy that I can’t even pronounce his name I don’t think will help you chaps out much more at all. Your party is actually better without a leader it seems you might actually hurt more with one of these people.

I think you are too focused on getting a leader and trying to make an election. You are probably better off not worrying about that and developing your image and earning your trust with Canadians.

Incroyable Dion might win this. Damm I really regret not placing a bid on him. I would have made a fortune.

He was my bet from the start but I didn't give him much of chance to win. Rea looks to be releasing his delegates so the vote could go either way.

Who asked you? Anyway it is my opinion. I think the grits either try and shut the Tories down now or work on their party more. I don't think dion can take down the Tories. The other fellow might be set to go but might hurt because of some of his views on things.

I think the Rae supporters mostly have Dion as a 2nd choice. He has the momentum. If Iggy has an ace, nows the time.

wow that was exciting, Its pretty clear that Dion will win now, most of the MP's from Rae's camp like Goodale have moved over to support Dion.

Any of the candidates had/have the potential to take down the Tories and they will.

Yep, Dion will win. Most of the Rae supporters are going with Dion.
Wow. Stéphane Dion, another Quebecer, chief of the Liberal Party. Who would have think that ?

Not with Dion ! You don't know how badly Dion is seen in Quebec. Liberals just lost Quebec and they can't win without Quebec. Between a hard and centralizing federalist and Harper who has proved to be more open to the Quebec, the choice is clear.

You never know politics can be quite unpredictable. But I think the Tories still have the upper hand especially comparing the leadership of Harper to Dion.

I disagree, the Tories only won support in Quebec out of anger at the liberals over adscam. I think next election, Dion & the Liberals will be the clear federalist vote in quebec and could even garner more support for his enviromental platform, which he is respected for in Quebec and a stark contrast from Harper.
