A two way race, more like a slow crawl from the liberals, I wonder if he realizes he is headed backwards...?

Well, let's be honest, it always is a two horse race - no other party has ever developed enough of a national profile to have a chance to form the government.

Martin is twice the man that Iggy is, and voters sent him walking with a clear message that its time for the liberals to rebuild their party and rebuild their platform.

Iggy's mistake is the same mistake that Dion made, he sits on his butt waiting for voters to have a change of heart. Thats not reform.

I"m still voting anything but Liberal or Conservative. I will never vote for these parties with anti-choice bigots in their caucus, and even separate caucuses that are specifically related to being anti-choice bigots.

I honestly believed Iggy had way more potential, but so far, his detractors have been right - he's reactive, vague and distant. The sad thing for the opposition is that Harper is electorally vulnerable, however, if no one can seize the initiative, he'll likely squeak out another minority.

As a Conservative supporter I was initially fearful of Iggy when he took power of the Liberals. Thankfully he has been exposed as a lame duck much the same as Dion. :lol:

The Liberals need a new leader if they ever hope to become the ruling party again, and the spawn of Trudeau is NOT the answer.

The last 10 federal elections have been a two horse race. What's his point?

He was very popular, but he has failed to reform the liberal party. Its still the same old boys club that screwed us over.

Me too, although unlike Dion he wasn't a one-issue (the environment) leader.

If Iggy actually followed his ideals (those he espoused as an academic/intellectual), I think he could easily crush Harper. That's because he is more centrist than Harper, but I think the big guys behind the scenes are scared to let him take the Liberals 'away from their roots', which of course is a joke because the Liberals were almost always the most centrist party in the country.

In person, Iggy is a great speaker and very eloquent, but these days if you can't get your message out just as well on TV, you don't have a chance.
