Nicely played Jack
Jack Layton just made a very reasonable suggestion to the PM, which was soundly rejected. Maybe its just political calculating, but its similar to Obama’s suggestion last week to issue a joint statement with McCain on the economy. Its pretty classy, for Jack, and the PMs rebuff makes it all the more effective. Combine this with this latest poll (scandalous! NDP and Liberals tied!) and it looks like this election may get real interesting. I may have to apologize to Jack about my previous incredulity towards his approach, maybe, not yet though.
