The Liberals Should Wait to the Fall to Force an Election

Dion is going to try to equate the Conservatives and Republicans. That being the case, it is clear that the fall is the best time to go. The Liberals should try to force an election as close to the US election as possible without coming after. They could then piggyback on what the Democrats are saying. Moreover, by having the two elections closer together you will give Canadians a sense that they can really stick it to Bush by voting down his Canadian surrogate. Of course, I said the same thing back in 2004.

Okay, granting your argument, when do you think the need to have an election based on principle outweighs the need to have an election based on opportunity? Now don't think I'm against the opportunity argument, however just to see where you draw the line, I'd like to see your answer.

Leave that silly concept to those villainous Conservatives!!!
