I wrote this the day the writ was dropped. "With the later looking more likely and Ignatieff looking set to join Dion, John Turner and Paul Martin as the fourth rider of the Liberal apocalypse, North Vancouver Liberal candidate Taleeb Normohamed could fair rather badly indeed."
Alas I was right. Iggy was the fourth rider. The party is dead.
Many said that the Liberals ran a good campaign. I thought that they ran a horrible campaign, but I let such talk blinker my expectations somewhat. Iggy and the Liberal brain trust will be savaged in the months to come and rightly so. All that be said in his favour is that he ran a better campaign than Dion.
