IndecisiĆ³n 2006

Looks like another squeaker of a win for a conservative government in North America - yet again.


  • This isn't over yet, not by a long shot!

  • Too bad.

  • Calderon is conservative only in party name. The most right wing party in Mexico is equivalent to our NDP in Canada.

  • How does Lawrence Martin spin this?

  • I agree with trustonlymulder on this one.

  • I just finished arguing with someone over this, but here I go again.

    Harper's victory on Jan. 23 wasn't a squeaker. Although it's a slim minority, it's still a decisive one. A 7% and 25 seat margin isn't a squeaker. Global called the race practically the second they came on the air.

    US 2000 and Mexico 2006 are squeakers. So were certain aspects of the Italian elections. Maybe the German one too, in the sense that the composition of the governing coalition was up in the air for a while.

    Actually, squeakers don't seen to happen in Canada, except at the riding level. The MP and regional makeup of our system probably contribute to that reality.

    Just my nitpick of the day.

  • You would figure a Green Party would do exceptionally well in a place like Mexico. I wonder why there aren't Green Parties in developing/non-G7 countries?

  • Because Green Parties are a luxury of the rich...

  • He just called you a snob for caring about the environment.

    Dig that logic! :D

  • *I* care about the environment.

    But the fact remains, it's easier to care about the environment when you're already quite wealthy... and there is a mountain of evidence to support this.

  • I agree with Toronto Tory, for once.
