If, ands or buts

If the current New Brunswick election was fought under the old rules, the Liberals would have won. This according to the CTV New Brunswick Election Specialist - wonder what his day job is?

Good Ole Hindsight.

This election features two leaders who are under - not to put too fine a point on it - immense pressure. Bernard Lord created a good brand and has steadily seen his / his party's popularity decline. He was once the darling of the "unite the right movement" and is now a B-list candidate who is more likely to end up on the "Where are they now list?", then to end up in Ottawa.

Shawn Graham has to convince people / his party / himself that he can put the Liberals over the top. It is not nearly enough to chip away at Lord. He needs to TKO the government.
