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
Are Canadians as anti-Afghan mission as they were, now that Barack Obama is leading the fight and not George W. Bush?But yes, the NDP is safe, the Tories are safe with their current voters but not safe with the ones they want to win, and the Grits are... well, they really should make up their minds now, shouldn't they?
Your second paragraph sums up the way I feel. The NDP has the least to lose, followed by the Conservatives (with the caution that if they do extend the mission, they will not grow their base). The Liberals, as usual, are being squeezed.
