It actually makes sense. A Harper majority means:
1. Martin leaves cleanly, without trying to stick around.
2. He'll be expected to follow through on his entire platform.
3. He won't be able to use the minority government excuse for "shifting to the centre". Because of this, his base will become mighty peeved when he doesn't deliver what they expect him to deliver.
4. The same sex marriage free vote he's promised might actually pass. That's one head-ache he probably doesn't want.
