Americans should study Canadian politics
John Kerry could have learned from some of our recent elections, where unpopular incumbents won re-election because the alternative was seen as too "scary". Of course, Kerry lost. He didn't learn from people named Manning, Day, or Harper. Even Harper learned from himself. The ideology is different, of course. Yet the strategic factors at play are the same on both sides of the border.
Maybe more Americans should study and learn from our politics. There's more up here than igloos and French accents. I swear.
