I Welcome Our Iggy Overlord

Irrespective of all the bravado on his first day, the question that remains is: Can the Liberals afford an election?

Apparently they could not afford a leadership race. The parliament crisis became a convenient smokescreen to resolve that issue. The May convention will simply disappear.

Ignatieff will continue to talk tough; talk is free and the media will soak it up and it should improve party donations. But come January 27th, if the poll numbers are still south, Iggy will vote with the Conservatives knowing full well that the Liberals cannot fund a quick election or ever win a later one after being carried by the coalition for any period of time.
