33. Yes, but...
The current prime minister is not the prime minister who kept us out of Iraq. I'm not convinced that we wouldn't be there had Martin been the prime minister. He does tend to suck up to the US administration more than his predecessor.

On the other hand, Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe were the two party leaders running this time who last time who were on record as being against involvement. Those two we know for certain. Martin I'm still not sure of; there are times I just wish he wouldn't bend over and grasp his ankles every time the president of the United States undoes his belt buckle.

You sound very much like someone who would just prefer to see the NDP go away. You must realize that in minority government situations, the NDP has been the only thing preventing the Liberals from acting like Conservatives. I still want to see the LIberals returned to power, but with an unassailable and definite NDP balance of power that will keep the government in line and behaving like Liberals.
