Reason #1000 for coaltion:
Stephen Harper almost scuttled President Elect Obama's bid for the White House.
We need a government that will be able to work WITH Mr. Obama as the US and Canada climb out of this recession. The tendency in the US will be to get "protectionist" - especially about jobs. We need to ensure that Canadian interests are protected. A leader with open channels to the White House will be able to do this...
Sorry "Steve", but Dubya ain't around anymore, and YOU BLEW IT by attacking Obama, and creating an incident that almost cost him the Presidency.
Do Canadians really believe Obama has forgotten the Harper attacks?
