Pierre the Great Posted November 13, 2006 Share Posted November 13, 2006 (edited) Its no secret I like politics. I like to see how the world ticks. I like anything that has anything to do with politics. And not just American politics as you all know I like anything political. So I decided to make a thread about politics. Any country any issue doesn't matter if its political it belongs in this thread. Nothing is really off limits although I'll stay out of Quebec issues as much as possible for I'm not a Quebecker but want to see whats best for Canada and Quebec. Its okay to post Quebec politics here though I just won't respond as much because I don't want to alienate people. France has a presidential election coming up next year and the Socialist Party picks the person who will run for it this week. I am a fan of Segolene Royal. She's the front runner in the race to get the nomination and I think she'll do great things. Canada: Garth Turner promises to shake up Ottawa once again: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/sto...y/National/home Interesting fellow that Garth Turner. Maverick for sure. Wonder what he's going to say on Wednesday. All politicians have egos. So it wouldn't shock me if the urge of becoming Canada's first Green Party member in Parliament is just too strong. I think he'll go to the Greens. Bob Rae: Comes out of the closet so to speak. He basically says he wants to unite the left, thats what I took from this article. The Liberals have a choice to make, Iggy is the Centre Right Canidate but he alienates the left part and Rae is the Centre-Left canidate he could alienate the progressive conservative right part. So what to do? Go to the right and go after Harper but at the same time lose more voters to the NDP? Or go left and take back some NDP votes and run on a unite the left (sort of) campaign? Interesting how this will plan out. It really is Chretien and Martin all over again. Fascinating to watch. Then the NDP has the Greens to worry about. And the Tories? Well there always prone to imploding. Joe Clark still around? http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/sto...y/National/home Edited November 13, 2006 by Pierre the Great Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
