Pool Results

Way back in March, I asked people to predict who would run for Liberal leadership. Looking back at the guesses made, it's clear that no one really had a good idea of how this race would shape up back then. Everyone knew Belinda would run, and a lot of people were convinced we'd see Goodale and Corderre in the race. On the flip side, few had Kennedy on their list and not a single person predicted the magical Hedy Fry candidacy.

The scoring was simple. 1 point for a correct guess and -1 for a wrong one. I made John Godfrey and Maurizio Bevilacqua zero point guesses since they did technically run but aren't running now.

Adding it all up and the winner is none other than Jason Cherniak, with 7 points. Jason predicted the entire field of 10 minus Hedy, and only had Stronach and Corderre as incorrect guesses. Observer had 6 points, while Mike P, Hussain, and BC Tory all had 5 points. Myself, and a bunch of others came in middle of the pack with 4 points (I had most of those who ran predicted but picked a lot of people who decided not to run too).


  • Bart,

    You is one diligent man, I have to say.

  • I'm not a Bob Rae endorser, but the fact that he and the interviewer spent most of their time disussing the Ontario debacle - only tells me that it was all the interviewer had prepared for the interview.

    It will take a really really gifted poltician to break out of the cubbyhole the press has decided they should be in,

    As for Iggy, I was actually defending him *shock and awe* when he first tossed out the civil war/clear question/50%+1 solution to "Quebec", because he was answering leading questions. But - if I'm not mistaken - he has since then repeated it all from a podium.
