Andrew Steele has a post up discussing the possible replacements for Harper should he fail a confidence vote in January.
To be clear, I don’t think he will lose. And if he did, there would be an immediate election leaving little room, because I’m certain Ignatieff would not lead a coalition.
However, some of the options are intriguing. Charest would have a great possibility of forming a majority government, and Prentice doesn’t seem to me like the panacea he is imagined to be in the essay. Day is still a punchline, and he will never lead the Conservatives.
Moore would line up well with my beliefs, but he won’t win the nomination and couldn’t win a majority. In conversation with Monte Solberg, he mentioned Moore as one of parliaments most noted libertarians.
