Conservatives Conquer US, Canada

It's worth mentioning that after 12+ years of Liberal rule in The Great White North, the conservative Stephen Harper has been elected to Canada's highest office. Most news reports are saying this change of heart is due to scandal. http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060is It couldn't be that Liberals have taken the country too far to the left could it?

When Clinton lost the Democratic majority in Congress for the first time in 50 years, he quickly abandoned Universal Health Care and announced "the era of big government is over". Clinton never regained Congress, but he was re-elected in 1996. The Dems have refused to learn from this lesson of moving to the middle and have managed to lose the Presidency and Congress for eight years running. Since running a Vietnam war protester for the oval office in 2004, the Dems have maintained a strident leftist rhetoric. The strategy seems to be keep moving left untill we win. At this rate, it will only take a few more elections before Howard Dean is replaced with Henry Belafonte. The silver lining for Canadian liberals is they still have a Parliamentary majority, but the Reagan Revolution began the same way. This bodes well for Republicans and a more conservative Canada will be less anti-American. I think I'll celebrate with a nice Canadian beer.

up until Hillary made her "plantation comments", she had been following her husband's example by moving more to the middle and even supported Bush's policy in Iraq. I think she was getting nervous about losing her base support and had to reassure them about her true political leanings.

I agree, despite what anyone might think of her, she does possess her husband's polital savy. There have been rumours that the Dems will move to the right on the border security issue, but how far can one truly expect today's Dem's to be moderate? Only time will tell.
