Why the Liberals SHOULD trigger an election

Two reasons...

ONE, because I want them to... we're ready to go NOW locally, it's better for us to go sooner rather than later. Forget about how things look nationally, locally, now is as good as it's going to get.

TWO, because if the Liberal keep letting us govern, the number of Canadians comfortable with Mr. Harper having a majority will only keep on going up...
"Another reason the Liberals might want to avoid an election now may be found in a result that shows 54 per cent say they trust Mr. Harper with a majority government, while 45 per cent said the same thing about Mr. Dion. The figures suggest that Mr. Harper may be starting to erode concern over how he would govern with an unfettered majority.

Mr. Donolo said the Liberals may be having difficulty marking out their territory, given that they are forced to sometimes criticize the government and at other times prop it up.

“They are unable to define themselves strongly or convincingly, because of the need to constantly bob and weave to avoid an election,” he said. “It's very difficult to see a silver lining here for the Liberals.”
The best forum for them to "mark their territory" is exactly where they keep on saying Dion will make his best impression... on the campaign trail.

    The problem with listening to fundamentalists is that they, or their ilk, occasionally stay really idiotic stuff like this: another godfreak speaks out
    That's some AAA, prime, thick-cut stupid. It makes it sort of hard to listen to everything else they say.

    Talk about a non-sequiter. I still wonder why you allow anonymous comments as they almost always have little to provide of real dialog.

    As for me, I really have no preference on way or the other. If the election were called today or in several months it won't change my feelings about it. In many ways it seems like all the parties have been ready (at least locally) for a long time already.
