Couple of points:
First of all, while I am sympathetic to Bob Rae's wish to include all Liberal party members in the leadership election, I have to say that the current Liberal leader electoral process is a farce. I covered one aspect of the last leadership election here: http://raisethehammer.org/index.asp?id=3... What a joke. You've heard the expression, 'a camel is a horse designed by committee'? Well that pretty much sums up the thinking behind the current process. I say let the caucus decide and get it over with.
Secondly, I hope this whole coalition side-show will help Canadians understand how their parliament is likely going to look for the next little while. Coalitions are the norm in many European countries - it's how democracy get's done (or not...). Unless we change our democractic model Canadians will have to lose this nonsensical notion that 'we voted for a leader'.
Of course the unworkability of coalitions is one of the strikes against PR. Perhaps if we can get our government to cooperate a little better we may be able to make PR a reality one day.
