My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. Jack Layton
Isn't that the point. The NDP are trying indeed to be the NEW (read Canadian) Democrats and Jack is trying to be Obama.I actually think it is smart and I say go the full monty and rename the party the Democrats after the election is over.
