Just wanted to say that I love both Jean Chrétien and Ed Broadbent.
Great men, hopefully doing great things.

Um, since both of them are retired, how could they be talking about forming a government?

They each have enormous influence and moral authority in their parties.

I'm glad Jack left the door open to it during the election ("We can work together") but Dion becomes a problem.

The Bloc are reportedly willing to support it so long as Dion doesn't head it. Does this mean PM Layton, or a more acceptable Liberal...?

"More acceptable Liberal", almost certainly, and that will probably be Ignatieff unless he's also anathema to the Bloc (maaaaaybe Rae pulls this out of the inevitable Liberal caucus vote, but I doubt it very much).

If this gets rid of Harper, I will be very, very happy. :)

Even happier if Layton runs the country. :D
