  • Brilliant idea!

    Wee bit of a streatch, no?

    By Blogger Omar, at 8:56 a.m.  

  • I thought the orange "grit" was sort of your subtle hint that the NDP and Liberals should unite as a moderate centre left party under Kennedy?

    By Blogger polarslam, at 2:43 p.m.  

  • Do you know you say nearly the same thing of Bob Rae and Stephane Dion in their respective 'Pros' sections? Of Dion, you say "Pros: More experience in the federal government than the rest of the field put together"; of Rae, you say "More experience in politics than the rest of the field combined". Now, 'federal government' is a subset of 'politics', so, logically, Rae cannot have more experience in politics than Dion if Dion has more experience in federal government than Rae, much less 'the reset of the field combined'.

    By Blogger admin, at 3:00 p.m.  

  • admin; Hmm...We'll it's hypothetically possible for both statements to be true. Dion's got more experience in a federal Cabinet than everyone (although guys like Maurizio and Volpe have been around longer). But Rae's been around in politics for ever and ever, going back to the 70s...just not in federal politics.

  • But Rae's been around in politics for ever and ever, going back to the 70s...just not in federal politics.

    Funny, I was under the impression that he spent at least the first decade of his career as an MP.

    By Blogger JG, at 5:19 p.m.  

  • Funny, I was under the impression that he spent at least the first decade of his career as an MP.

    Actually from 78 to 82, he helped bring down the Clark government. But he was in opposition (with the NDP), not in government.

    By Blogger Jeff, at 6:02 p.m.  

  • Darling, I don't at all mind that to my, and presumably some others', eye it appears that graphic prominence is given to a select few stacked vertically on the sidebar, with others couched in the bottom like the secondary stars blazoned on the bottom of a 1970s disaster flick, or Superman sequel. In fact, I think it's a good - if unintentional - idea.

    But why on earth is Joe Volpe in that vertical stack, and not Scott Brison? Or, dare I hope, Martha Who Who.

    Other than that quibble, I think it's a wonderful graphic, and I do love your quite witty, "Race For Stornaway" idea!


    By Blogger Lois, at 9:08 p.m.  

  • Bob Rae was an MP?!

    Goodness, the things I learn here! I had no idea at all.

    By Blogger Lois, at 9:10 p.m.  

  • Yeah, Rae was an MP before entering federal politics.

    I pretty much picked people at random for their placing. All the pics should be roughly the same size.

    By Blogger calgarygrit, at 9:15 p.m.  

  • The pictures are all, as far as I can tell, the precise same size. But the lines of the photos that border onto the main graphic are smaller if the top of the photo, and larger - and more prominent - if the the side of the photo.

    Oh, I'm trying to be funny about Mr. Volpe! I wasn't trying to be a pain.

    I just thought it was funny that the slightly-more prominent photos were of Dion, Ignatieff, Rae, Kennedy, and.... Volpe, whereas I'd anticipate finding Brison there. (Or, cross my fingers, Martha Who-Who!)

    Sorry to be a pest, pet - an ill-advised attempt at a Joe Volpe joke, which I meant for you to appreciate.

    I really should not kid, I fear!

    By Blogger Lois, at 9:43 p.m.  

  • How come no profile on Hedy Fry? Thought she was one of the top three at the ONtario speeches. Reckon she deserves equal consideration as the others.

    By Blogger jane, at 3:32 a.m.  

  • Hedy will get hers too...

    She was late into the race so I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    By Blogger calgarygrit, at 9:49 p.m.  

  • Hey Bart,

    you can add me and my blog to your list - I'll be in bagel and smoked meat heaven in less than 24 hours!


    By Blogger Gavin Magrath, at 2:37 p.m.  

  • Sorry, I should have said - Hey DAN, you can add me to your list!!


    PS - I also changed my name recently, but no one cares so i didn't mention it. FYI "Neil" is my middle name.

  • Doubt you'll see this comment, but:

    The Martha Hall Findlay bio link lacks an article. Would be nice to hear a bit more about her.

    By Blogger Alexander Soley, at 10:52 p.m.
