The only coalition

…is the one you’ll see between Stephen Harper and Thomas Mulcair, agreeing that there should be as many leadership debates as possible. And you know why.

Story by iPolitics on that, and other stuff, here.

    Given all that ammo that will be used against Harper, I doubt that he’ll want more debates.

    As the economy rolls over in 2015, he’ll be running for cover.

      You’re kidding right dude?
      Harper and Mulcair will have a field day playing with Trudeau in a debate.
      You’re dreaming in Trudeau technocolour.

        Bobby, I think JT will be your, and anyone else who tries him on, worst nightmare. The best is yet to come.

          “The budget will balance itself”

          Harper would take him to the woodshed in any debate. Book it.

    scot,

    I also think Justin should not be underestimated. But I also believe he should be hammered with great regularity in mock debates between now and the election. Practice apparently, makes perfect.

      nothing new there. Layton was in bed with Harper long before the last election. The dippers are real whores.

        I’ll hand it to the Liberals. They wheren’t “whores” to the Conseratives. They gave thier unconditional support to them for free.

    Gayle says:

    Trudeau is probably banking on low expectations.

    I’m guessing Mulcair and Harper would be satisfied with 2 debates if Trudeau performs badly in both. Why give him a chance to improve?

    Debates are a stupid way to evaluate a potential PM, but unfortunately that’s what we do.

      Joe says:

      You are right as usual Gayle. Debates are truly bad ways to decide on a PM or premier or mayor. Everyone knows that beauty contests work much better. Failing beauty contests one can also get a really good impression of the the candidates by reading opinion pieces written by people who all live in the same neighbourhood.

        Gayle says:

        Well I was thinking more along the lines of policy, the qualifications and experience of not only the leader, but also the people he or she attracts to the party. The ability of the leader to connect with voters, and the plan and vision that leader has for the country.

        Performing well in a two hour debate, or being good at cross examination, gives you no insight into how someone will steer the economy, or handle difficult and critical social issues.

        So, you know, I prefer assessing a candidate on policy, but if you prefer seeing him argue with other leaders, or, as you profess here, win a beauty pageant, that’s your prerogative.
