Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

The election campaign has already begun

Harper addresses caucus today in Ottawa (Photo by CP/Tom Hanson)
The media will be justified in focusing on the Senate reform proposal Harper announced to caucus earlier today. However, what I also found interesting about the speech was that, not only did it sound like it was being delivered during an election campaign, it marked out a general theme the Conservatives might well use once we actually have that campaign.

Specifically, Harper talked a lot about how Canadians voted for change and that's exactly what Conservatives have delivered. The Liberals, on the other hand, have desperately tried to block that change. Some variation of this theme is almost certainly going to form a part of the Conservative message when Canadians end up actually going to the polls. That Liberal leader Stephane Dion was an integral part of past governments can only help Stephen Harper deliver this new message of change and reform.

Should be interesting.
