Dion da one dat won.

I think Jack just dodged a bullet. If Rae had won I think the NDP would have been in big trouble going into the next election. Ignatieff probably would have been best for Jack, since he would have had a clear field against two war-mongering lunatics, but unfortunatley one of those lunatics would still probably have won the next election.
So, I'm pretty happy tonight to see Dion take the prize. Not only does he not spell disaster for the NDP, but his strong environmentalism might just take the wind out of the sails of those pesky Greens.

Hate to pee on your parade , but I think that Jack is the disaster awaiting the NDP .The London by-election may be a hint.Just as the LPC rejected Rae,everyone knows of Jacks eratic,self serving TO counsillor antics.Gonna be hard to shake the Taliban Jack moniker!

Can't say I disagree too much. Jack can be relieved that Rae didn't win, but he still has his work cut out for him. He's been annoying a lot of people lately, me included. I think Jack will avoid disaster, as I said. The NDP will be left standing and declare victory. Same as always.
