At this point, it'd be smart for them.  But if the Liberals want to be the "party of the centre" then that's a different story.

When your riding is surrounded by NDP elects, it's hard not to.

Montmorency-Charlevoix, by the way, has swung to the NDP. Bloc is rising in Richmond-Arthabaska.

He's down by 5.6% with 193/279 in, and he's been trailing all night. I'm going to say no.

It's already been projected - No.  But Stephane Dion and Justin Trudeau won.

Are the Liberals going to tear themselves apart? It looks like it from the pretty different tones of Bob Rae's interview and Ignatieff's speech.

The real problem with the Liberals is that they have no solid base. GTA is gone. Another Vancouver riding is gnawed away. New Brunswick has repudiated ex-Premier Graham's party.

All we have now is a party of individuals. Trudeau, Fry, Rae, McCallum, McGuinty... these powerful personalities will tear the party apart. And they have no affiliation to the party, but instead the party is affiliated to them. They can walk away if convenient.

The feudal nature of the Liberals is still evident. If that's not fixed by the year's end, the Liberals are gone.

You can tell how much harder the BQ was hit by how somber Duceppe sounds in his speech compared to Ignatieff.

Feeling slightly better, logged on. Harper majority is not great, but NDP managing second is. Some remarkable results in Quebec and Toronto. Shame about the Prairies; a paradoxical side-effect of NDP success their at a provincial level.

I suppose the obvious question is 'what now', isn't it?

The parade of egos left in the Liberal Party is sort of amusing.

Richmond-Arthabaska looks to be a Bloc hold. 34-33 lead with 230/251 in. So... they'll be getting at least 2 seats.

He also said, "others will follow until Quebec becomes a country. ... Quebec needs to become a free country."

Planning for the PQ leadership still, I see. Should have taken it in 2007 when he could.
