Anyone?

The liberals have by far the strongest leader and most appealing platform, compared to the NDP scaremongering and the PC spending spree. I just don't get Gerrards third place attitude with a goal of being the balance in a minority situation (which will not happen). Too bad also about the lack of high profile candidates.

Minority is happening. There has not been enough oomph by either the NDP to protect their hold or the PCs to boot them out. There will be multiple Red and Green members elected to hold the balance of power.

Two of the leaders will go after the election and one of them will surely be Gerrard.

"...by far the strongest leader...."

Thanks for that. I needed a good laugh right about now.

I think you are right. even if Gerrard goes to 8 seats... he will step down as leader within the year following. just a guess though

Maybe "strong" wasn't the right term - but he certainly has more worthwhile accomplishments and experience than the other three fellows combined:

He's, by far, the best at spouting platitudes.
