You See A Trap -- Layton Sees An Opportunity

From Leslie Campell in the Globe:
While the Liberals may think they have trapped the NDP, they haven't. The lifeblood, the raison d'être, of the federal NDP is holding the balance of power in Parliament. The truth, and mythology, of the NDP is that great leaders – Tommy Douglas, Stanley Knowles, David Lewis, Ed Broadbent – have patiently clung to principle, willing to suffer setback for the opportunity to leverage their parliamentary position into progress for ordinary Canadians ignored by the traditional power brokers.
Team My Dink Is Bigger Than Yours, will never understand this reasoning. Their thing is power and the perks that come with power.
